About the course
The course gives a basic understanding of the central concepts in magnetism, the quantum mechanical interactions that underlie magnetic order and collective excitations in magnetic materials. The course elucidates on energy related applications of magnetism like soft magnetic materials in transformers and generators as well as within nanosciences, e.g. magnetic memories and magnetic data storage.
