Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Aim of the subject is to repeat basic properties of magnetic field and relate them with practical usage at chosen diagnostic methods. We focus our attention mainly on diagnostics of defects at steel ropes using the magnetic defectoscopy, 3D imaging with magnetic resonance tomography, observation of magnetic domains on surfaces of magnetic materials due to magneto-optical Kerr microscopy and magnetic force microscopy, etc.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


Study of magnetic properties of solid matters. Summary of basic magnetic diagnostic methods – magnetic defectoscopy, magnetic resonance tomography, methods for observation of magnetic domains, VSM magnetometry, magnetooptics.
