An understanding of magnetostriction is important for a range of technologically and scientifically important materials. The book covers bulk and thin film magnetostrictive materials, superconductors and oxides. The role of magnetostriction in determining or influencing the physical properties is discussed in depth and wide-ranging reference lists are provided for further study. Contributors have provided both tutorial material and discussions of leading-edge science.
Readership: An invaluable reference for all condensed matter physicists, material scientists and technologists for whom bulk or thin film magnetic materials or superconductors are central to their interests.
