Magnetic Structures of 2D and 3D Nanoparticles

Properties and Applications

edited by Jean-Claude Levy

Magnetic nanoparticles are a fascinating and rich topic of contemporary physics and chemistry. The size and aspect ratio of nanoparticles together with their arrangement in space generates a myriad of properties, which are of fundamental interest and promise a number of potential applications from data storage to cancer treatment. This book provides in-depth reviews on the main experimental and theoretical aspects of magnetic nanoparticles, including their fabrication, various analytical tools for determining magnetic domains, domain walls, phase transitions, magnetostatic interaction, and magnetization reversal mechanisms. The book is rounded up with more specialized topics on spin dynamics in magnonic crystals and specifically on magnetoferritin nanoparticles. It also contains a review on spin cross-over materials that have picked up much interest in recent years. All chapters are written by experts in their pertinent fields. The book will appeal to beginners as well as to advanced researchers in the field of nanomagnetism."
