Two of the most important themes of modern magnetism are the making of magnetic structures and the switching of magnetization on ultra fast time scale. With the help of the interaction between photons and electrical states in atoms we can achieve both. Nanofabrication with the help of atomic optics can provide a tool for the production of magnetic nanostructures, where femtoseconds laser shots can provide coherent control of magnetization on ultra light picoseconds timescale.
