A combined magnetic force and spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy study of the closure domain pattern of Co(0001)

Ding, H. F.; Wulfhekel, W.; Chen, C.; Barthel, J.; Kirschner, J.

Abstract: The complex fractal closure domain pattern of bulk Co(0001) is investigated using standard magnetic force microscopy in air and spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy in ultra high vacuum. The advantages as well as the limits of both methods based on the fundamentally different contrast mechanisms are illustrated. Using spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy, further insight in the fine structure of the magnetic configuration of Co(0001) is gained. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
