Fundamentals and Applications of Magnetic Materials

Kannan M. Krishnan


This book provides a comprehensive discussion of magnetism, magnetic materials, and related applications. The logical train of thought progresses, in four parts, from physics of magnetism (§1–5), magnetic phenomena in materials (§6–8), size and dimensionality effects (§9–10), and applications in physical (§11, §13, §14) and biomedical (§12) technologies. Beginning with a description of magnetic phenomena and measurements on a macroscopic scale, it is followed by discussions of intrinsic and phenomenological concepts of magnetism, such as electronic magnetic moments and classical, quantum, and ...
