by Lamberto Duo
This first focused treatment on a hot topic highlights fundamental aspects as well as technological applications arising from a fascinating area of condensed matter physics. The editors have excellent track records and, in light of the broadness of the topic, retain the focus on antiferromagnetic oxides. They thus cover such topics as dichroism in x-ray absorption, non-magnetic substrates, exchange bias, ferromagnetic-antiferromagnetic interface coupling and oxide multilayers, as well as imaging using soft x-ray microscopy. The result is a very timely monograph for solid state physicists and chemists, materials scientists, electrical engineers, physicists in industry, physical laboratory technicians, and suppliers of sensors.

After obtaining his Ph.D. degree from the Politecnico di Milano in 1987, Lamberto Duo worked as a postdoc at the Surface Science Centre of the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom, on electron spectroscopies of metal alloys (1988-1990). He was then appointed as a staff scientist to the Physics Department of the Politecnico di Milano, where he subsequently became associate professor. Professor Duo worked on electron spectroscopies of highly correlated electron systems, spin resolved electron spectroscopies of magnetic systems with low dimensionality, and scanning near-field optical microscopy of magnetic nanostructures. He is the author of over 100 publications and is involved in ...More About Lamberto Duo
