From the Editor

Semiconductors, metals and ceramics through decades, have been used in highly complex systems, viz., optical and magnetic mass storage media, light emitting diodes, and optoelectronic devices. In this regard, the large numbers of materials, with modified and improved properties, carry out various functions such as data collection, processing, transmission, storage and display information. The technological advancements in magnetic and optical materials are shaping the boundaries shared by the various fields of physics, chemistry, engineering and materials science. This book gives comprehensive information of the progress made in the magnetic and optical materials. It also provided couple of interesting feature of these materials that have meticulous significance in the performance of these materials in the various fields of science and technology. Furthermore, this book is a sole compilation of important discussion about magnetic and optical materials such their synthesis, properties, characterizations and applications in a single platform.

The work included in this book have been organized and summarized in two parts. First part comprises of magnetic materials. Different aspects of magnetic materials are discussed in details by various authors; in a way that should allow the scientific community to select the best materials for a particular application. On the other hand, the second part consists of optical materials which provide past and most recent breakthrough discoveries in optics and photons. The subsequent paragraphs illustrate in brief the agenda of each of the chapters with facts and details. This book is organized into following fourteen chapters:

Chapter 1 gives an introduction to the primary concepts of superconductivity, magnetism and their interaction in composite structures. It includes an overview of the structure and phase diagram as well as the properties of superconducting and magnetic part of these composites.  The magnetic anisotropy in different ferromagnetic materials has also been reviewed. This chapter also summarizes the survey of current experimental results along with the theoretical calculations regarding different magnetic heterostructures. In chapter 2 magnetic antiresonance in different metallic nanocomposites has been reviewed in detailed. The criterion for magnetic antiresonance to be occurring at frequencies of millimeter waveband along with the ferromagnetic resonance is also presented in a detailed manner. Further, the discussion provides possible reasons for antiresonance existing in the reflection and absorption waves. Chapter 3 presents the recent development of glass ceramics with good bioactivity and magnetic property for bone healing and hyperthermia treatments of solid tumors. In this chapter, various magnetic materials and their oxides doped with bioactive matrix and magnetic bioactive glass ceramic in different systems were investigated in details. The recent development and various strategies in the preparation, microstructure, and magnetic properties of pure and surface functionalized iron oxide nanoparticles; their corresponding biological application is presented in Chapter 4. The new functionalized strategies, problems and major challenges, along with the current directions for the synthesis, surface functionalization and biomedical applications of iron oxide nanoparticles, are also discussed. The direction and scope for further research in the area of functionalized iron oxide nanoparticles are also suggested.

Further on, nanocarriers based on magnetic nanomaterials for anticancer therapy is presented in Chapter 5. This chapter reveals the great potential of magnetic nanomaterials for the anticancer therapy, by reporting and discussing promising examples of the published data. The principle of anticancer therapy as well as recent studies on magnetic nanomaterials for biomedical applications is offered as a basis for understanding the mechanism of magnetic nanoparticle-mediated anticancer therapy. A detailed theoretical study on the strain energy of carbon nanobelts, i.e. the belt-shaped molecules representing the sidewall structures of carbon nanotubes is presented in Chapter 6.  Chapter 7 gives an extensive overview about room temperature molecular magnets – modelling and applications based on metals and metal oxides. The mechanism by which molecules based magnets stabilize and display a net magnetic moment is also given in this chapter.

The scientific society recognizes 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies are owing to the importance of lighting and display systems in every part of the human evolution. The drive of luminescent materials with superior optical and photoluminescence properties in a wide range of areas has shared the research efforts in this sector aimed in the direction of achieving better material features. The development of white-light-emitting diodes with enhanced color and efficiency of lighting and display industries is presented in Chapter 8. This chapter also discusses the important requirement and scientific questions that come up in synthesizing cost-effective and environmental friendly light emitting diodes based on different rare earth doped inorganic host materials. Also, it suggests opportunities for new researchers for futuristic development in the area. Chapter 9 presents the design of luminescent materials with Turn-On/Off response for anion and cations. Recent advances in various lanthanides and transition metals doped/co-doped nano for lighting, sensing and biomedical applications are reported in Chapter 10. Also, current status and future prospective of luminescent materials are presented in common along with appropriate documents take out from the scientific literature. Synthesis, characterization and applications of quantum dots based on different materials are presented in Chapters 11 and 12, respectively. Chapter 13 gives the development of functional luminescent materials and phosphors for use in solid state lighting. The discussion starts with some history of phosphors based on different materials and how the progress carried out in this direction by various researchers. Finally, the progress in organic light emitting materials and their potential applications are presented in Chapter 14. This chapter explains the breakthrough and charactertics of organic materials based phosphors. The main motive of this chapter is not to wrap all the accessible literature, but to a certain extent add some of the most recent accomplishments and concise information in this area.

Thus, this book brings together ground breaking synthesis techniques and approaches implemented in the research and developments of advanced magnetic and optical materials. Widely known researchers across the globe include subjects on (1) synthesis, characterizations, modeling and properties, (2) state-of-the-art design and (3) innovative uses of magnetic and optical materials. Such advance investigations will be a milestone in the path of real time applications of magnetic and optical materials. It is well known that research works on advanced magnetic and optical materials are based on various aspects of physics, chemistry, biology and engineering. The book is written for readers from diverse backgrounds across chemistry, physics, materials science and engineering, nanoscience and nanotechnology, biotechnology, and biomedical engineering.
