About this book

Introduction

This book covers both basic physics of ferromagnetism such as magnetic moment, exchange coupling, magnetic anisotropy and recent progress in advanced ferromagnetic materials. Special interests are focused on NdFeB permanent magnets and the materials studied in the field of spintronics. In the latter, development of tunnel magnetoresistance effect through so called giant magnetoresistance effect is explained.

Keywords

Exchange coupling Magnetic anisotropy Magnetic moment NdFeB magnet Spintronics Tunneling magnetoresistance
