Why nanomagnetism? • • Spintronics? Combination of “charge” and “spin” in nanostructures Charge + Spin Scalar + Vector What nano scale? 2D 1D 0D FM/AFM interface Nano-structure Scalar + vector = more degree of freedom A great example: GMR A better understanding of “spin” at nano-scale is needed. Bubble domain M H vortex Exchange bias .
