Alongside advances in nanomaterials and nanotechnology, ferrite nanoparticles are now being considered for a diverse variety of current and emerging applications. Ferrites are being utlized in a wide range of applications from home appliances to spintronic devices.
Ferrite Nanostructured Magnetic Materials: Technologies and Applications provides a detailed description of physical properties of ferrite nanoparticles and thin films. Synthesis methods and their applications in numerous fields are included in the book. Ferrite materials have diverse morphologies so there is specific attention on the growth of different nanostructures including nanocubes, nanorods, nanotubes, nanoflowers, and other hierarchical structures. Post-synthesis tools and methods are reviewed such as heavy ion irradiation, implantation, and laser irradiation.
Since characterization methods play an important role in investigating the materials' phenomena, various characterization tools applied to ferrite materials are included in the book. To meet the requirements of next-generation characterization tools in the field of ferrite research, synchrotron radiation-based spectroscopic and imaging tools are also discussed.
Finally, the book discusses current and emerging applications of ferrite nanostructured materials in industry, health, catalytic and environmental fields.
Ferrite Nanostructured Magnetic Materials: Technologies and Applications is suitable for researchers and practitioners in the disciplines of materials science and engineering, chemistry, and physics.
