Lecture Notes on Nanomagnetism
by Olivier Fruchart
Publisher: Institut Neel, Grenoble 2011
Number of pages: 82
Nanomagnetism may be defined as the branch of magnetism dealing with low-dimension systems and/or systems with small dimensions. Such systems may display behaviors different from those in the bulk, pertaining to magnetic ordering, magnetic domains, magnetization reversal etc. These notes are mainly devoted to these aspects, with an emphasis on magnetic domains and magnetization reversal.

This book heralds the new age of nanotechnology, which will give us thorough and inexpensive control of the structure of matter. Drexler examines the enormous implications of these developments for medicine, the economy, and the environment.

These notes about nanoscience and nanotechnology should explain to the student some of the underlying concepts behind 'nano'. It describes to the student the physics rather than just providing a qualitative overview of developments in the field.

In this review we present a self-contained account of three novel transport regimes in semiconductor nanostructures. The experimental and theoretical developments in this field have developed hand in hand, a balance that we maintained here as well.
