Lectures, problem solving and theoretical/experimental project.
Sessions with lectures and
problem solving are held Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning during the first 9 weeks of the course. There are 3 compulsory take-home assignments. Theoretical or experimental project (equivalent to 2.5 ETCS points) to be carried out in the subsequent 4 weeks and completed by approval of written report.

General course objectives:
The aim of the course is to give the student a broad knowledge of magnetism and magnetic materials and related experimental techniques.
|A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:|
- Describe why materials have magnetic moments
- Describe why and how magnetic moments in materials interact
- Calculate the magnetic response of a magnetic material to an external magnetic field
- Describe and visualize the different types of magnetically ordered structures (ferro-, antiferro-, and ferrimagnets)
- Calculate the magnetic phase transition temperature in the mean field model
- Derive an expression for magnetic excitations (spin waves)
- Explain formation of magnetic domains and single-domain properties
- Explain the particular magnetic properties of nanoparticles and low-dimensional systems
- Describe the principles in a series of magnetic measurement techniques: magnetization measurements, magnetic spin resonance techniques (including NMR), Mössbauer spectroscopy, neutron scattering, magnetic force microscopy, electron holography
Magnetic moments in solids, magnetic interaction, magnetic ordering, ferromagnetism, ferrimagnetism and antiferromagnetism, magnetic model systems, magnetic domains, magnetic nanoparticles and low-dimensional systems, magnetic materials, nuclear magnetism, NMR, magnetization measurements, Mössbauer spektroscopi, neutron scattering, magnetic force microscopy, electron holography, and magneto caloric effect
