Course content
This course covers the fundamentals of magnetism and recent developments and applications of magnetic materials.
From the first application of the oxide magnetite as a compass in China in ancient times, magnetic materials have become an indispensable part of our daily life. Magnetic materials are used in the modern world, in fields as diverse as, for example, electrical energy transport, high-power electro-motors and generators, navigation equipment, aviation and space operations, telecommunications, medicine, magnetocaloric refrigeration, computer science, high density recording, non-destructive testing of materials, and in many household applications.
The course discusses the origins of magnetism in materials, magnetic domains and domain walls, magnetostatics, the magnetic anisotropy and ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic ordering. Then, the preparation techniques and the properties of various magnetic materials are highlighted. Magnetic materials include transition metals, their alloys and oxides, rare earths and their oxides, organic and molecular magnets are highlighted. Finally, several applications of magnetism like soft magnetic materials (transformers, generators), hard magnetic materials (permanent magnets, microwave technology) and within modern nanosciences like magnetic memories and magnetic data storage are presented.
Purpose of class
