Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The subject treats phenomenological description and basics of quantum description of magnetism in solids. The subject starts with magnetostatics, magnetism of electron and magnetism of localized (Weiss, Heisenberg) and delocalized (Stoner) moments. Then, exchange interaction and correlation in metals are introduced, followed by description of the spin fluctuation (spin waves, magnetization dynamics). Finally, we introduce experimental techniques for magnetic studies (SQUID, VSM, XMCD, FMR) and we introduce the typical magnetic materials.
