Welcome to the Micro and Nano Magnetics group! If you are a student or practicing engineer or scientist who wants to learn more about magnetics or an instructor looking for materials to use in a course, you can find resources here that include seminars on specialized topics as well as simulation tools and (soon) learning activities that use simulations.
Please share educational material that you have created and send requests and suggestions for other material to include to the group manager(s). If you are interested in helping curate the content of this group, directing its growth and recruiting new members to create a rich and vibrant community, please let the group manager know.
Much of the material is freely accessible by any visitor, but by joining this group, you can participate in discussion forums on topics of interest to you, or work on a project with other group members. Additionally, as a group member you may receive notifications about new materials and events of interest to the materials science group members. Adding events to the group calendar is as easy as clicking on “add event”.
You can also contribute substantial resources to nanoHUB through the resource contribution process, and then send a message to the group manager so that links to those resources can be added to this group. Three resources including a course with instructions on how to use the Rappture toolkit and publish a simulation tool on nanoHUB are here.

Magnetic Tunnel Junction Group
Forum for discussion on subjects related to Magnetic Tunnel Junction
By Donald P. Arnold, Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL
This talk highlights the development of microfabricated permanent magnets and their application in various functional microsystems. Basic concepts about magnets and physical scaling laws are introduced. Two types of permanent magnet materials—electroplated layers and bonded powders—that overcome certain manufacturing and integration challenges are presented, along with the batch-fabrication process to create complex magnetic pole patterns in thick films, the method used to characterize the stray fields at the micro-scale, and they way these tiny magnets are being used for electromechanical transducers, nanomanufacturing, and microrobots.
