Summary

The course includes physical principles of thin-film magnetism. It includes phenomena of perpendicular magnetic anisotropy, exchange coupling, modeling of magnetization reversal, dynamic behavior of magnetic and micromagnetic structures, transport, and magnetoimpedance effect. Basic part is applications in magnetic recording and memories, magnetic sensors, and spin electronic. Important part of the course are characterization techniques including magneto-optic vector magnetometry, SQUID, Brillouin light scattering, Magnetic Force Microscopy, Kerr microscopy, and spin-polarized low- energy electron diffraction.
