Research areas and projects of the CRC/TRR 270

Researchers at the CRC/TRR 270 aim at designing the hysteresis of magnetic materials used for energy conversion. The projects are grouped into the research areas “Maximum hysteresis for permanent magnets”, “Minimum hysteresis for magnetocalorics”. They are supported by central projects.
