  • 3. Why nanomagnetism? What nano scale? • Spintronics? • Combination of “charge” and “spin” in nanostructures 2D 1D 0D Charge Scalar + + Spin Vector FM/AFM interface Nano-structureScalar + vector = more degree offreedomA great example: GMR MA better understanding of “spin” atnano-scale is needed. H Bubble domain vortex Exchange bias
