This volume covers the properties and structure of a range of magnetic materials with engineering applications. It discusses ferromagnetic, ferrimagnetic and amorphous materials and their role in the two major property groupings of high permeability and permanent-magnet materials. Other groups, including materials suitable for magnetic recording, magnetoelastic transducers, magneto-optical discs and magnetic bubble memories are also included. Much of the book is devoted to the discussion of the basic mechanisms which determine magnetic properties. In particular, the mechanisms of magnetization are reversal and coercivity are related to and interpreted in terms of the structure of various materials at both the atomic and microstructural levels. For ease of location of materials and topics, all chapters are structured with numbered headings. A large amount of information is presented in textual, tabular and graphical form. Extensive references direct the reader to the most important or most representative original papers or reviews.
The book is aimed at research students in materials science and electrical engineering, as well as industrial researchers, for whom the concentration on useful materials should be of particular interest.
