About the book

Ferrite is a ceramic-like material composed of iron oxide with small proportions of additional metallic elements such as nickel, cobalt, zinc, and manganese. Ferrite is used in many areas including engineering, material sciences, physics, chemistry, biology, and medicine. This book aims to cover a number of topics including the introduction to ferrite, types of ferrite, its fabrication by different techniques, and application of ferrite in conventional and modern technologies.

This book plans to include both experimental and theoretical topics and provide up-to-date information about ferrite properties and its applications, with a particular focus on modern applications of ferrites and how ferrites are being used to enhance the performance of these devices. As this field is considerably large, an effort has been made to include original references discussing each topic on a more detailed manner.

This book is an important source of information and will be interesting for students, materials scientists and engineers working on ferrites and their technological applications in recent days.
