Magnetism: From Fundamentals to Nanoscale Dynamics
by J. Stöhr and H. C. Siegmann


External Editorial Review:The present text book gives an comprehensive account of magnetism, spanning the historical development, the physical foundations and the continuing research underlying the field, one of the oldest yet still vibrant field of physics. It covers both the classical and quantum mechanical aspects of magnetism and novel experimental techniques. Perhaps uniquely, it also discusses spin transport and magnetization dynamics phenomena associated with atomically and spin engineered nano-structures against the backdrop of spintronics and magnetic storage and memory applications. The book is written for students on the late undergraduate and the graduate levels and should also serve as a state-of-the-art reference for scientists in academia and research laboratories.

Magnetism: From Fundamentals to Nanoscale Dynamics
by Joachim Stöhr


External Editorial Review: This comprehensive treatment of the fundamental principles and applications of NEXAFS spectroscopy develops all concepts from an elementary level, presenting a unified picture of the latest theoretical and experimental results. The power of this technique is demonstrated, in particular, in the application to low-Z molecules bonded to surface, systems of special interest in surface chemistry, where NEXAFS reveals the electronic and structural properties of the molecules. While reserachers and students without extensive prior knowledge of X-ray absorption spectroscopy are catered for by the systematic presentation of the underlying concept, practicing spectroscopists will find here details of state-of-the-art instrumentation in analysis techniques, and results, along with tabulated information about the various molecular adsorption systems that have already been studied by NEXAFS.
