Magnetic materials can be divided into three major groups; diamagnetic, paramagnetic and ferromagnetic. From a magnetic point of view, the ferromagnetic are the most interesting. Ferromagnetic materials include the elements iron, nickel, cobalt, certain of the alloys of these elements and a group of alloys first studied by Huesler. These latter are ferromagnetic largely because of the presence of manganese in special combination with the other non-ferrous elements.
