Magnetism of artificially structured thin films and nanostructures have in recent years attracted much interest because of discovery of novel properties like oscillatory exchange coupling, giant magnetoresistance and room temperature spin-dependent tunneling. The ability to control and custom tailor magnetic properties of artificially layered materials and, more recently, magnetic nanostructures have opened new horizons in studies of magnetic properties at scales ranging from mesoscopic to atomic, and have also given rise to new technologies like spintronics. My research interest centers on use of spin-resolved electron and synchrotron radiation based technique to unravel the electronic and magnetic structure of these new systems.
