Understanding the magnetic properties of materials is important for fundamental and technological reasons. A very powerful technique to study ferromagnetic materials is X-ray magnetic dichroism (XMCD). The XMCD signal is obtained from X-ray absorption measurements at the K or L-edge(s) of the atom(s) carrying the magnetic moment(s). Such data provide information on the spin and orbital magnetization separately. In this lecture the basics of the XMCD method is introduced and highlighted on a few examples.
