Ferromagnetic Microwire Composites: From Sensors to Microwave Applications


The academic monograph, Ferromagnetic Microwire Composites: From Sensors to Microwave Applications, written by Prof. Peng Huaxin and Prof. Qin Faxiang, has been published by Springer, a internationally renowned science and technology press, in March, 2016.



Springer is one of the world's largest science and technology press. With more than 150 years of history, Springer is known for publishing academic publications covering materials, chemistry, computer science, economics, engineering and so on.


Prof. Peng Huaxin, selected in the tenth batch of national long-term thousand talents in 2014, joined the School of Materials Science and Engineering Zhejiang University, and founded the Institute for Composites Science Innovation in May 2015. The main research directions of Prof. Peng: aerospace fiber reinforced resin matrix composites; multifunctional composite materials; metal-ceramic composites; nanocomposites and coatings; microstructure design at nano, micro and mesoscale.


Prof. Qin Faxiang, selected in the Hundred Talents Program of Zhejiang University in 2015, joined the Institute for Composites Science Innovation of Zhejiang University; in March 2016. He was selected as the 12th National Youth Thousand Talents Program. The main research direction: multi-functional composite materials; super composite materials; stealth materials; soft magnetic materials.


Research on magnetic microfilaments can date back to the 1950s, focusing on its own soft magnetic properties and its application to sensors. In 2007, Prof. Peng Huaxin and Prof. Qin Faxiang proposed a new idea of using magnetic microwires to realize multifunctional composite materials and pioneered this research direction internationally. After years of hard work, through the in-depth study of the design optimization of microscopic and mesoscopic structures of composite materials and related basic theories, the multi-functional characteristics of high-sensitivity stress sensing, electromagnetic shielding, microwave absorption and metamaterial properties have been realized. Composite materials have broad application prospects in key engineering fields such as structural health monitoring of aerospace composite components, microwave stealth of aircraft and ships.This monograph consists of 13 chapters and 245 pages. It systematically expounds the preparation of magnetic microfilaments, the analysis of giant magneto-impedance characteristics, the design of various micro-filament multifunctional composite materials and the physical mechanism of related properties, including the author's nearly ten Major research achievements and experiences in the field over the years. The third author of the monograph, Dr. Manh-Huong Phan, was the first Ph.D. student directed by Prof. Peng Huaxin in University of Bristol in the United Kingdom. He is currently an associate professor at the University of South Florida.
