This interdisciplinary approach to the topic brings together reviews of the physics, chemistry, fabrication and application of magnetic nanoparticles and nanostructures within a single cover. With its discussion of the basics as well as the most recent developments, and featuring many examples of practical applications, the result is both a clear and concise introduction to the topic for beginners and a guide to relevant comprehensive physical phenomena and essential technological applications for experienced researchers.
From the Back Cover:
Magnetism of nanoparticles is an area of intense development that touches many fields including material science, condensed matter physics, biology, medicine, planetary science, etc. Yet, in that brief time, magnetic nanoparticles have become a valued research tool in broad array of scientific, engineer and commercial field.
This book presents a coherent and comprehensive treatment of the subject with an up-to-date discussion many unique phenomena such as superparamagnetism , quantum tunnelling of magnetization, enhanced magnetic coercivity , magnetic phase transitions, size effects, surface influence, interparticle interactions and interactions of magnetic nanoparticles with a matrix. Thus this Book brings together in one, compact volume almost all aspects of modern nanotechnology magnetic materials.
The topic of magnetic nanoparticles is becoming increasingly important due to its prominent role in many of today's biomedical, information and energy technologies including ferrofluids, high-density magnetic storage, high-frequency electronics, high performance permanent magnets, magnetic refrigerants, etc Serving as a timely and convenient reference source including some new advances, the Book will appeal to academic and industrial researches as well as graduate and senior undergraduate students in the fields of nanotechnology of magnetic materials
