Overview

Magnetism and Magnetic Resonance in Solids by Alberto Passos Guimar?es, Guimaraes

A short introduction to magnetism and magnetic resonance

New applications in the magnetism of matter and magnetic resonance phenomena are major factors in the current technological revolution. The world market for magnetic media and recording equipment is roughly $100 billion a year, and the application of magnetic resonance to medicine continues to revolutionize the diagnostic process and alter our understanding of the human body. This volume offers a concise treatment of these fascinating and interrelated topics. It explains the fundamentals and describes the latest research activity in various disciplines, including physics, materials science, and engineering.

Magnetism and Magnetic Resonance in Solids features clear and concise overviews of:
* The properties of magnetic materials
* Hyperfine interactions in condensed matter
* The microscopic study of magnetism of matter
* Applications of nuclear magnetic resonance and magnetic resonance in materials.

Supplemented with numerous exercises, solutions, and tables as well as many suggestions for further reading, Magnetism and Magnetic Resonance in Solids is an excellent text for senior-undergraduate and graduate courses in physics, materials science, and engineering. Practicing scientists in other fields will find this a useful introduction to the field of magnetism. It is also an important reference for researchers in medical imaging technology.
