Magnetism and Magnetic Materials University of Tsukuba
Lecture on the fundametals of magnetism, magnetic materials and spintronics. Firstly, magnetism is discussed from a microscopic point of view, followed by topics of magnetic anisotropy and technical magnetization etc. Based on the above knowledge, nanomagnetism and spintronics are discussed including tunnel magnetoresistance. Finally, some typical examples of applications are shown as well as the prospect in this field.
To learn magnetism, magnetic materials and spintronics from the fundamentals to the latest topics, including basic concepts, microscopic understanding (especially the effect of Coulomb energy, etc.) and important applications.
To obtain high-level knowledge and understanding in a specialized topic in the degree program.
Basic knowledge in physics and materials science: undergraduate level quantum physics, statistical physics, thermodynamics, crystallography, etc.
Mini tests about each lecture content and class report after all the lectures.
