We briefly review the active areas of current research in magnetic superlattices, emphasizing later years. With recent widening use of advanced technologies, more emphasis has been made on quantitative atomic level chemical and structural characterization. Examples where the multilayer structure has been controlled, characterized and correlated with the physical properties are discussed. The physical properties are categorized according to the complexity of a structure needed to observe a particular effect. We outline a number of general important unsolved problems, which could considerably benefit from theoretical and experimental input. An extensive list of magnetic multilayer materials is provided, with references to recent publications.
