In this symposium, transmission electron microscopy techniques for imaging magnetic fields, such as Lorentz microscopy, differential phase-contrast (DPC), electron holography, and electron energy-loss magnetic chiral dichroism (EMCD), are emphasized. As functional magnetic materials continue to decrease in size, surfaces and interfaces play a growing significance on novel nanoscale magnetic phenomena. Further, skyrmions and topological insulators have recently received widespread interest leading to an increasing demand for high resolution quantitative magnetic measurements in combination with local structural characterization. With recent advances in mind, the goal of this symposium is to bring together experimentalists involved in applying/developing magnetic techniques and those involved in simulations and/or the development of theory to explain quantitatively magnetic phenomena with TEM.
