Contributed Papers


Magnetic-structure analysis by means of spin-polarization analysis of the secondary electrons in a scanning electron microscope-type (SEM) experiment is demonstrated, using the LEED spin-polarization detector. The advantages in size, handling ability and efficiency, relevant for SEM operation, are pointed out. Limitations and future development are discussed.
