This article gives an overview of the use of X-ray absorption spectroscopy to characterize the magnetic properties for technologically important, low dimensional magnetic materials. An overview is given both for the experimental hardware, the measurements and the analysis of the spectra. The information obtained is discussed for metallic and semiconducting systems, using both the X-ray magnetic circular dichroism and the X-ray linear magnetic dichroism spectroscopy.
