This timely book covers basic mechanisms, characterization, theoretical simulations, and applications for exchange bias in granular nanosystems, thin films, and bulk systems. After an overview of the field and key principles, the next section covers nanogranular (core-shell) systems, followed by chapters on thin films, bilayers/multilayers nanostructures, dilute magnetic semiconductors, and multiferroic systems. A final section turns to bulk systems, such as those consisting of perovskite structures, rare earth-transition metal intermetallic, and ion implantations.

Readers of this book will obtain

  • A complete, modern overview on exchange bias phenomena, covering synthesis, characterization techniques, and applications
  • An introduction to all the important phenomenological models proposed for thin films, bulk materials, and nanoparticles
  • Detailed discussion of the importance of size, shape, cooling field, and temperature on exchange bias properties
  • Understanding of novel applications of exchange bias systems

About the Series

Monograph Series in Physical Sciences

This monograph series brings together focused books for researchers and professionals in the physical sciences. They are designed to offer expert summaries of cutting edge topics at a level accessible to non-specialists. As such, authors are encouraged to include sufficient background information and an overview of fundamental concepts, together with presentation of state of the art theory, methods, and applications. This approach makes these titles suitable for some specialty courses at the graduate level as well. Subject areas covered in this series include condensed matter physics, atomic and molecular physics, plasma physics, particle physics, quantum physics, energy sciences, nanoscience, spectroscopy, mathematical physics, geophysics, environmental physics, and so on, in terms of both theory and experiment.

New books in the series are commissioned by invitation. Authors are also welcome to contact the publisher (Lou Chosen, Executive Editor: to discuss new title ideas.
