About this book

Advanced Magnetic Nanostructures is devoted to the fabrication, characterization, experimental investigation, theoretical understanding, and utilization of advanced magnetic nanostructures. Focus is on various types of 'bottom-up' and 'top-down' artificial nanostructures, as contrasted to naturally occurring magnetic nanostructures, such as iron-oxide inclusions in magnetic rocks, and to structures such as perfect thin films.

Chapter 1 is an introduction into some basic concepts, such as the definitions of basic magnetic quantities. Chapters 2-4 are devoted to the theory of magnetic nanostructures, Chapter 5 deals with the characterization of the structures, and Chapters 6-10 are devoted to specific systems. Applications of advanced magnetic nanostructures are discussed in Chapters11-15 and, finally, the appendix lists and briefly discusses magnetic properties of typical starting materials.

Industrial and academic researchers in magnetism and related areas such as nanotechnology, materials science, and theoretical solid-state physics will find this book a valuable resource.

About the authors

David J. Sellmyer was educated at the University of Illinois and Michigan State University, where he received B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics. He was Assistant and Associate Professor of Materials Science at MIT, before moving to the University of Nebraska in 1972. He served two terms as Chairman of Physics, and is now George Holmes Distinguished Professor and Director of the Center for Materials Research and Analysis and an NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Center. He has published more than 370 articles and reviews in the areas of electronic structure and magnetism in metallic compounds and alloys, random magnetism and phase transitions in magnetic glasses, magnetic properties of rare earth-iron permanent-magnet materials, and magnetism and magneto-optics of cluster-assembled and self-assembled nanostructures.

Ralph Skomski was educated at the Technische Hochschule Merseburg and Technische Universität Dresden, where he received Dipl.-phys. and Ph.D. degrees. In 1991, he became a postdoc at Trinity College Dublin, and 1995 to 1997 he was a postdoctoral researcher at Max-Planck-Institut für Mikrostrukturphysik in Halle. He then moved to Lincoln and is now a Research Associate Professor at the University of Nebraska. His research interests include model calculations in the areas of permanent magnets and magnetic nanostructures and are characterized by a close collaboration with experimentalist, engineers, and theorists focusing on numerical methods. He has published more than 100 contributed and invited papers and reviews, mostly on various topics in magnetism, and one book, "Permanent Magnetism" by R. Skomski and J. M. D. Coey.
