A new book slated to be published in late May and co-edited by our own Brad Dodrill is now available for order from Springer Nature.
"Magnetic Measurement Techniques for Materials Characterization" (ISBN 978-3-030-70442-1) discusses the most commonly used techniques for characterizing magnetic material properties and their applications. The book provides a comprehensive and easily digestible collection and review of magnetic measurement techniques. It also examines the underlying operating principles and techniques of magnetic measurements and presents current examples where such measurements and properties are relevant.
Dodrill, who has been with Lake Shore Cryotronics for more than 35 years and is currently Senior Scientist and VP of Applications for the company, co-edited the book with Victorino Franco, a Professor in the Condensed Matter Physics Department of the University of Seville (Spain). Both also contributed chapter content, as noted below.
In addition, Thomas Bapu, Principal Engineer for Lake Shore, contributed a chapter, and Jeffrey Lindemuth, Senior Application Scientist, and Harry Reichard, magnetometry consultant to Lake Shore, co-authored the two chapters written by Dodrill.
