Paper Abstract

A brief review of using soft x-ray resonant magnetic scattering in the study of magnetic thin films and multilayers is given. Results from recent studies of thin Fe films and Fe/Gd multilayers are used as examples to demonstrate the information that can be obtained and the unique features of this technique. Comparison is made with related techniques: magneto- optical Kerr effect, Faraday effect, and magnetic circular dichroism.
