Download Half-metallic Alloys: Fundamentals and Applications by Iosif Galanakis, Peter H. Dederichs PDF

By Iosif Galanakis, Peter H. Dederichs

Half-metals are specific ferromagnetic fabrics which are regarded as hybrids among metals and semiconductors. a specific characteristic of those fabrics is that electrons on the Fermi point exhibit entire spin polarization making them best goals for examine into compatible divices for spin electronics. This ebook is either an creation and state-of-art survey of the newest advances within the figuring out and functions of Heusler alloys and comparable compounds.

Physics of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials

In my ongoing overview of the literature during this topic region, I had this ebook pulled by means of the library. permit me get the risks of this assessment out of how first. The writing kind essentially means that the e-book could have been collated from direction lecture notes and fabric. In lectures, fabric is gifted as part of a lecture, with loads of spoken phrases so as to add rationalization and feeling to densely written notes.

Magnetism and Structure in Functional Materials (Springer Series in Materials Science)

Magnetism and constitution in sensible fabrics addresses 3 detailed yet comparable themes: (i) magnetoelastic fabrics equivalent to magnetic martensites and magnetic form reminiscence alloys, (ii) the magnetocaloric impression relating to magnetostructural transitions, and (iii) tremendous magnetoresistance (CMR) and similar manganites.

Strongly Interacting Matter in Magnetic Fields

The physics of strongly interacting subject in an exterior magnetic box is shortly rising as a subject matter of serious cross-disciplinary curiosity for particle, nuclear, astro- and condensed topic physicists. it's identified that powerful magnetic fields are created in heavy ion collisions, an perception that has made it attainable to review a number of impressive and exciting phenomena that emerge from the interaction of quantum anomalies, the topology of non-Abelian gauge fields, and the magnetic box.

Liquid-quenched Alloys

Quantity 19 of team III (Crystal and good nation Physics) bargains with the magnetic homes of metals, alloys and metal compounds. the volume of data to be had during this box is so large that a number of subvolumes are had to conceal all of it. Subvolumes III/19a via III/19f deal with the intrinsic magnetic homes, i.
