Magnetism at Surfaces and Spin Polarized Electron Spectroscopy

  • H. C. Siegmann
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 163)


Magnetic properties are often very different at the surface compared to the bulk. The inherent breaking of the symmetry at the surface, compositional and structural changes as well as surface adsorbates are possible causes of surface induced magnetic changes. The complex phenomena associated with magnetism at surfaces pose a great challenge to the experimentalist and require new techniques of measurement.
