Abstract:

This symposium comprised 11 invited talks and 42 contributed papers, ran over 3 12 days, and provided a unique and interactive forum in which recent advances in low dimensional magnetism, diluted magnetic semiconductors, epitaxial overlayers and the utilization of in-situ and ex-situ techniques to characterized their microstructure, electronic and magnetic properties were discussed. The study and growth of ultrathin magnetic structures is a rapidly expanding filed of materials research whose growth is synergistically driven by an increasing appreciation of the degree to which the magnetic properties depend on interfacial processes, and by the utilization of growth techniques which permit the fabrication of multilayer structures with novel electronic and magnetic properties. Equally important is the fact that atomic level control of the microstructure of these layers offers new opportunities to elucidate the physics of magnetism and to rigorously test theoretical models.
