Magnetic Ceramics describes the structure, preparation techniques, magnetic properties and applications of iron-based oxides also known as ferrites; metallic magnetic materials are also covered in depth. The main purpose of the book is to provide an up-to-date overview of the relevant aspects of ferrites, which cover a wide range of magnetic properties and applications such as high-frequency transformer cores, permanent magnet cements, microwave telecommunication devices, magnetic recording media and heads. The approach is that of materials science, characteristically interdisciplinary, where chemical aspects are covered in terms of synthesis/fabrication methods and crystal structures, and physics is introduced to provide a theoretical basis to magnetic properties. A special emphasis is given to the relationship between microstructure and properties.
