Research Description

Selective magnetization is the process of magnetizing specific parts of a magnetic material without affecting the other parts of the material. Selective magnetization can be useful in several applications; the overall goal being to make it possible to decreases the size of device by encompassing selective magnetized materials. Some of the applications that selective magnetization can be used in are X-ray generators, small-scale energy harvesters, and cell-trapping devices. This project serves to discover more about the selective magnetization process and how it can be utilized in medical applications.
