Magneto-Optical (MO) Characterization Tools for Chemically Prepared Magnetic Nanomaterials

Abstract

Magneto-optical (MO) techniques are sensitive and versatile tools for the study of magnetic nanomaterials. Interaction of polarized light with a magnetized medium brings information on the magnetic properties of the sample, thus making MO techniques a valid alternative to standard magnetometric techniques. On the other hand, spectroscopic degrees of freedom arising from the tuneability of the incoming photon energy give access to an additional set of information, inaccessible to other investigation methods.
