West Virginia University

Professor Mohindar S. Seehra received his early education in India (B.Sc. Punjab University; M.Sc.: Aligarh University). He joined West Virginia University as Assistant Professor of Physics in 1969 after receiving Ph.D. (University of Rochester, USA), becoming Associate Professor in 1973, Professor in 1977 and Eberly Distinguished Professor in 1992. His honors in research include: A. P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellow (1974-1976); Fellow of the American Physical Society (1984-present); Fellow of the Institute of Physics, UK (2001-present); and Outstanding Referee Award of the American Physical Society in 2010. He has guided the research of 65 graduate and postdoctoral students and authored over 300 publications on the magnetic, dielectric, optical and catalytic properties of materials and nanoparticles and edited two books. In 2016, he became Eberly Professor Emeritus.

Magnetic spinels including ferrites are insulating magnetic oxides and chalcogenides with strong coupling to microwave frequencies and low eddy current losses making them indispensable for applications in wireless communications. The 13 chapters and preface of this book discuss other potential applications of magnetic spinels along with various methods used for their synthesis and their varied properties resulting from substituting different metal ions at the A and B sites. These applications include ferrofluids, anticorrosion coatings, absorber coatings for photothermal conversion, biomedicine, and environmental applications such as oxidation of volatile organic compounds and removal of arsenic and heavy metals from water. Emphasis is placed on structure-property correlations and on the nature of magnetism in spinels and their nanoparticles with current information provided for future research.
