Abstract

Abstract The discovery of magnetic dichroism in core level spectroscopy opened the route to magnetic domain imaging. By employing light in the soft X-ray regime one obtains chemically specific information. Besides the commonly used circular magnetic dichroism (MCD), we demonstrate feasibility of using linear magnetic dichroism in absorption for domain imaging in the photo electron emission microscope (PEEM). By combining different light polarizations, one obtains vectorial information on the magnetic moment distribution close to the surrface.
