Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films having large stack of amphiphilic-fatty-acids bearing rare-earth-ions are ideal two-dimensional magnetic systems to study spin-vortex ordering as the distances of the magnetic-ions along the out-of-plane and in-plane directions differ by an order of magnitude. Here we present results of in-situ X-ray scattering measurements on Langmuir monolayer of the amphiphilic stearic acid on the water surface containing Gadolinium ions to understand the formation process of monolayer and multilayer LB films on the substrates. Infrared spectroscopy and microscopy measurements were also carried out to understand the growth and transfer mechanism of the LB films.
