One Line Description
This book is a unique compilation of important discussions about magnetic and optical materials such as their synthesis, properties, characterizations and applications in a single platform.

The book has a wide market including researchers, scientists, engineers in materials science, optoelectronics, photonics, bio- and nano- technologies and biomedical engineering.

Advanced materials enrich the high-throughput engineering of physical and chemical phenomenon including electrical, magnetic, electronics, thermal and optical controls. An enormous research interest has been devoted to the field of optical and magnetic materials technology largely due to the quest to understand and discover the possibility and utility of promising applications. Though many of the basic properties of materials were revealed by studying and observing the bulk structured materials, it is mostly with the advent of nanoscience that exotic magnetic and quantum mechanical properties of materials in the nanoscale are being discovered.
Advanced Magnetic and Optical Materials is divided into two parts. The first part consists of magnetic materials in which different aspects are discussed in a way that allows the scientific community to select the best materials for a particular application. The second part consists of optical materials and provides past and the most recent breakthrough discoveries in optics and photonics. Specifically, the book covers:
Part 1: Magnetic Materials
• Magnetic Heterostructures and superconducting order
• Magnetic Antiresonance in nanocomposites
• Magnetic bioactive glass-ceramics for bone healing and hyperthermic treatment of solid tumors
• Magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles
• Magnetic nanomaterial-based anticancer therapy
• Theoretical study of strained carbon-based nanobelts: Structural, energetical, electronic, and magnetic properties
• Room temperature molecular magnets – Modeling and applications
Part 2: Optical Materials
• Advances and future of white LED phosphors for solid-state lighting
• Design of luminescent materials with “Turn-on/off” response for anions and cations
• Recent advancements in luminescent materials and their potential applications
• Strongly confined quantum dots: Emission limiting, photonic doping, and magneto-optical effects
• Microstructure characterization of some quantum dots synthesized by mechanical alloying
• Advances in functional luminescent materials and phosphors
• Development in organic light emitting materials and their potential applications
