Magnetism and Magnetic Materials

Practical information
Study year 2016/2017
Time
Block 4
Programme level Full Degree Master
ECTS 7,5 ECTS
Course responsible
  • Kim Lefmann (7-756e6f766a777749776b7237747e376d74)
  • The Niels Bohr Institute
Course number: NFYK13015U

Course content

This course is an introduction to current experimental techniques to study magnetism in materials: magnetisation and susceptibility, Mössbauer spectroscopy, NMR, muon spin resonance, and neutron scattering. The physical basis of the techniques and typical data and examples are presented. The course contains one project, based upon laboratory work or analysis of data taken elsewhere.

Learning outcome

Skills
The student should be able to

  • Describe the principles in a series of magnetic measurement techniques including magnetization, susceptibility, Mossbauer spectroscopy, NMR, muon spin ressonance, and neutron scattering
  • Describe the theoretical background for medical MR imaging
  • Explain the magnetic properties of selected materials, e.g. nanoparticles

Knowledge
The course gives an introduction to selected experimental techniques for studying magnetic materials, currently used by research groups in the Copenhagen area. The course will comprise the topics:

  • Bulk magnetic measurement techniques: magnetisation and susceptibility
  • Mossbauer spectroscopy
  • NMR, including MR imaging
  • Muon spin resonance
  • Magnetic neutron scattering.

Competences
This course will provide the students with a background for further experimental studies within this research field, e.g. further courses, or a M.Sc. project.
In addition, the student will learn how to connect theoretical models and experimental methods.

Recommended prerequisites

Knowledge of Solid State Physics. It is an advantage to have followed the course Condensed Matter Physics 2 (CMP2).
