Ferromagnetic Materials

  • A material is considered ferromagnetic if it can be magnetized. Materials with a significant Iron, nickel or cobalt content are generally ferromagnetic.
  • Ferromagnetic materials are made up of many regions in which the magnetic fields of atoms are aligned. These regions are call magnetic domains.
  • Magnetic domains point randomly in demagnetized material, but can be aligned using electrical current or an external magnetic field to magnetize the material.
