The Wolfson Centre for Magnetics was founded in 1969 to provide a base for research, consultancy and learning in aspects of magnetics directly relevant to industry or society. Its mission is to maintain infrastructure and staff expertise capable of carrying out basic and applied studies of magnetic materials and their industrial applications. Long term research direction is guided by an External Advisory Board whose members have wide experience in the application of emerging themes in magnetics.
The Centre is internationally recognised for its established track record in research on aspects of production, characterisation and application of soft magnetic materials. Major UK Government funding has provided purpose built laboratories housing world class magnetic characterisation, modelling and testing facilities.
Staff are prominent in contributing to and organising established international conferences and seminars on properties and applications of soft magnetic materials. They also lead the unique MSc course in Magnetics which provides students with ability to apply their magnetics understanding and knowledge acquired on the course in a wide range of engineering applications.
Research and consultancy projects are carried out for organisations ranging from world leading multinationals to local small companies. This is backed up by offering dedicated short courses backed up by hands-on laboratory or modelling education and training.
