Publication: The Evolution of Magnetic Domains

September 12, 2016

Soft x-ray photoemission electron microscopy was used to observe and characterize the evolution of magnetic domain structure as a function of temperature in micromagnets patterned into epitaxial films of La₀.₇Sr₀.₃MnO₃. These images reveal the formation of novel spin textures that are a hybridization of well-described configurations and emerge from the balance between fundamental materials parameters, micromagnet geometries, and epitaxial strain.
