Recent progress in information technology, wireless communication, biotechnology
and microelectronics requires advanced technologies and new magnetic materials to
meet demands of modern devices. This collection of eight chapters provides an up‐todate
review of recent trends and developments in technology, characterization
methods, theory and applications of modern magnetic materials with original, never
published contributions from the renowned scientists in the field of magnetism.
Materials are important to mankind because of the benefits that can be derived from the manipulation of their properties, for example electrical conductivity, dielectric constant, magnetization, optical transmittance, strength and toughness. Materials science is a broad field and can be considered to be an interdisciplinary area. Included within it are the studies of the structure and properties of any material, the creation of new types of materials, and the manipulation of a material's properties to suit the needs of a specific application....
