Examples of the application of photoelectron emission microscopy (PEEM) combined with synchrotron radiation excitation are reviewed. In particular, the combination study of PEEM and X-ray magnetic dichroism spectroscopy is very valuable for magnetic domain imaging. According to the demands of the industry, such as the production of magnetic recording media, the application method becomes very important. In this review, several examples of studies using magnetic circular and/or linear dichroism spectroscopy for ferro- and antiferromagnetic materials are introduced. In addition, pump-probe time-resolved PEEM is introduced. These methods allow us to measure the dynamical motion of micro-magnetic structures in mesoscopic size magnets in response to the field pulse in the sub-nanosecond range.
