Abstract:

The Institute reviewed the remarkable progress made in magnetic materials over the last few years and addressed the current state-of-the-art research and its impact on technological applications. The subject matter fell into a number of broad areas including thin films, multilayers, disordered systems, ultrafine particles, intermetallic compounds, permanent magnets and magnetic imaging techniques. The development of new techniques for materials preparation has made a dramatic impact in the area of epitaxial growth of magnetic films. Several presentations have shown that this process can be controlled on the scale of atomic layers permitting the growth of artificial structures such as artificial superlattices with nearly atomic resolution. Epitaxial growth has also permitted stabilization of metastable phases in thin films which often possess a strong perpendicular anisotropy.
