Springer Science & Business Media, 2005 - Science - 517 pages
Magnetic materials are all around us, and understanding their properties underlies much of today's engineering efforts. The range of applications in which they are centrally involved includes audio, video and computer technology, tele-communications, automotive sensors, electric motors at all scales, medical imaging, energy supply and transportation, as well as the design of stealthy airplanes.
This book deals with the basic phenomena that govern the magnetic properties of matter, with magnetic materials and with the applications of magnetism in science, technology and medicine.
Dedicated to magnetic materials and applications of magnetism, this book deals with permanent magnet (hard) materials, magnetically soft materials for low-frequency applications, then for high-frequency electronics, magnetostrictive materials, superconductors, magnetic-thin films and multilayers, and ferrofluids. A chapter is dedicated to magnetic recording. The role of magnetism in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and in the earth and the life sciences, is discussed. Finally, a chapter deals with instrumentation for magnetic measurements. Appendices provide tables of magnetic properties, unit conversions, useful formulas, and some figures on the economic place of magnetic materials.
