The magnetostatic interaction between elements of a regular two-dimensional array of rectangular garnet pixels has been investigated. The up- and down switching fields of an individual pixels, have been measured magnetooptically. The switching characteristics of a given pixel depends on the state of the neighbors. In this work the effect of the magnetization state of the first 5 coordination shells on a central, test pixel was investigated experimentally and numerically. The interaction field, i.e. the demagnetizing/ magnetizing effects, is calculated exactly and in the dipole approximation for 24 pixels surrounding the central pixel. A good agreement between experimental and numerical results has been obtained.
