Spin-polarized low-energy electron microscopy (SPLEEM) is a powerful tool to reveal details of sample morphology and spin-resolved electronic structure in nanostructured materials. By illuminating sample surfaces with spin-polarized electrons and monitoring spin-dependent electron reflection to form images, we can probe sample structure as well as electronic and magnetic properties during in-situ preparation [1,2,3].
