Introduction to Magnetism

  • Daniel D. Stancil

Abstract

The study of magnetostatic waves can be divided into two parts for convenience: the physics of magnetism and magnetic resonance in thin films, and the electrodynamics of wave propagation in a magnetically anisotropic medium. The former topic is the subject of Chapters 1 and 2. The goal of these chapters is to motivate and derive the complex permeability tensor of suitable magnetically ordered materials and its dependence upon magnetic bias field, frequency, and temperature. Having thus obtained the permeability tensor, the remainder of the book deals with electromagnetic and magnetoquasistatic waves propagating in such a medium. We will generally concentrate on nonconducting materials because of their low microwave losses.
