Abstract

Applications of synchrotron-radiation-based Mössbauer spectroscopy in the “energy domain” to the studies on magnetism of thin films are introduced on the basis of the experiments recently performed at SPring-8, Japan. The measured samples are spintronics-related thin films, such as Co2MnSn films, layered Fe/Cr films, layered Fe/Fe3O4 films, and Fe4N films. The validity of the energy domain measurements is demonstrated in the light of industrial applications of magnetic thin films.
