Carbon-Based Magnetism by Tatiana Makarova

Book Description

Magnetism is one of the most intriguing phenomena observed in nature. Magnetism is relevant to physics and geology, biology and chemistry. Traditional magnets, an ubiquitous part of many everyday gadgets, are made of heavy iron- or nickel based materials. Recently there have been reports on the observation of magnetism in carbon, a very light and biocompatible element. Metal-free carbon structures exhibiting magnetic ordering represent a new class of materials and open a novel field of research that could lead to many new technologies.

Author Biography - Tatiana Makarova

Tatiana Makarova's research interests are in carbon-60 solids. In 2001, as a member of an international team from Sweden, Germany, Brazil and Russia she found a small ferromagnetic signal in a polymerized form of fullerene. This experiment proved to be the catalyst for the current interest in magnetic carbon. Fernando Palacio is Professor of Research of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas at the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Aragon and member of the Condensed Matter Physics Department at the University of Zaragoza. His research interests are in molecular magnetism, the magnetism of disordered antiferromagnets and magnetic nanocomposites, where he has published over two hundred research articles and edited two books.
