Micromagnetics and Recording Materials by Dan Wei

Micromagnetics and Recording Materials is a book trying to give a systematic theory of computational applied magnetism, based on Maxwell equations of fields and Landau-Lifshitz equations of magnetic moments. The focused magnetic materials are magnetic recording materials utilized in computer hard disk drives. Traditionally, Micromagnetics includes the areas of magnetization curve theory , domain theory and read and write process analyses in recording systems . As Springer Briefs, this book includes the first two areas of micromagnetics. M-H loops of hard magnetic thin film media, soft magnetic layers and Tunneling MagnetoResistive spin valves are solved based on the microstructures of thin films. Static domain structures and dynamic switching processes are analyzed in the arbitrary-shaped magnetic devices such as write head pole tips and magnetic force microscope tips. The book is intended for researchers who are interested in applied magnetism and magnetic recording in all disciples of physical science.Prof. Dan Wei works at Tsinghua University, China.

About the Author

Prof. Dan Wei received her B.Sc. in physics from Peking University, China in 1988. She was a CUSPEA (China-US Physics Exchange Application, 1979- 1989) exchange student. In 1993, she completed her Ph.D. in physics at University of California at San Diego (UCSD), USA. From 1993 to 1996, she was a postdoctoral researcher in the Center for Magnetic Recording Research (CMRR) at UCSD. In November 1996, she became an Associate Professor with the Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE), Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. In August 2000, she became a full Professor with DMSE, Tsinghua University. Her research focuses on the micromagnetic theory of magnetic materials and magnetic information storage systems. She was elected as a senior member of Chinese Association of Electronics in 2002, a senior member of IEEE in 2003 and an IEICE overseas member in 2007. She is the chair of IEEE Magnetic Society, Beijing Chapter (2011-2013).

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Maggie Crane

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

Jocelyn Garvey

If you love reading, then you'll love Lovereading! Full of tips & info for every discerning reader.

Lynne Rapson

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

I love 'try before you buy' extracts. I love the wide range of authors & genres. I love the author info. I love books!

Judi Davies

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

It's a lively, independent website with reviews, recommendations and more - with a huge range of books available to buy in all formats.
