Paper Abstract

The principle and implementation of time-resolved scanning Kerr microscopy are discussed. The versatility and significance of this technique for magnetic research is illustrated with experimental results, covering determination of important dynamical parameters and tracing the dynamics of magnetization reversal in microstructures. The described industrial applications include dynamical characterization of recording heads.
