Novel approach to magnetic measurements atom-by-atom

Having the possibility to measure magnetic properties of materials at atomic precision is one of the important goals of today’s experimental physics. Such measurement technique would give engineers and physicists an ultimate handle over magnetic properties of nano-structures for future applications. In an article published in Physical Review Letters researchers propose a new method, utilizing properties of the quantum world – the phase of the electron beam – to detect magnetism with atom-by-atom precision.
