Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 158)


Magnetization process has been discussed by both rotation magnetization and domain wall displacement. These two processes are explained to be able to understand easily and intuitively. When the magnetic materials are applied for devices various losses are produced. Hence, the origin of losses is briefly explained. Various kinds of soft magnetic materials have been reported so far. Typical alloys and their magnetic characteristics will be shown.
