Magnetic materials are essential in modern daily life as they are used in numerous areas, such as electronics, industrial equipment, and automobiles, as energy conversion materials that drive devices such as generators, which convert kinetic to electrical energy, and motors, which convert electrical to kinetic energy. This chapter introduces the technological history and representative examples of magnetic materials. Further details can be found in Refs. [1–12].
