This book discusses the most commonly used techniques for characterizing magnetic material properties and their applications. It provides a comprehensive and easily digestible collection and review of magnetic measurement techniques. It also examines the underlying operating principles and techniques of magnetic measurements, and presents current examples where such measurements and properties are relevant. Given the pervasive nature of magnetic materials in everyday life, this book is a vital resource for both professionals and students wishing to deepen their understanding of the subject.

About the Author

Victorino Franco is a professor in the Condensed Matter Physics Department of the University of Seville, Spain. His main research interests cover magnetic materials for energy applications, including soft-magnetic and magnetocaloric materials. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed technical articles on these topics. He received the Young Scientist Award from the Royal Physical Society of Spain in 2000 and was named IEEE Magnetic Society Distinguished Lecturer in 2019. He has served as chair of the Spain Chapter of the IEEE Magnetics Society, chair of the Magnetic Materials Committee of the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), and member of the Steering Committee of the European School of Magnetism. He has been Editor and Publications Chair of several Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM) conferences and the General Chair of the 2022 Joint MMM-INTERMAG Conference. Brad Dodrill graduated from The Ohio State University in 1982 with a BSc degree in Physics. He completed 2 years of graduate studies in Physics and Electrical Engineering and took a position with Lake Shore Cryotronics in 1984 as a Research Scientist. He was promoted to Systems Applications Engineer (1989 - 1996) and served a key role in the development of a commercial AC susceptometer/DC magnetometer and a vibrating sample magnetometer. He later served as an Applications Scientist and Product Manager (1996 - 2002), and in 2002 he was appointed VP of Sales. In 2018 he transitioned to his current position as VP of Applications and Senior Scientist. He has 49 paper publications to his credit and holds 3 U.S. patents. He has lectured at numerous universities and given invited and contributed talks at technical conferences in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Mexico on vibrating sample magnetometry, AC susceptometry, alternating gradient magnetometry, and on the use of the first order reversal curve (FORC) measurement and analysis technique for the characterization of magnetic materials.
