Magnetic and superconducting materials pervade every avenue of the technological world - from microelectronics and mass-data storage to medicine and heavy engineering. Both areas have experienced a recent revitalisation of interest due to the discovery of new materials, and the re-evaluation of a wide range of basic mechanisms and phenomena. This Concise Encyclopedia draws its material from the award-winning Encyclopedia of Materials and Engineering, and includes updates and revisions not available in the original set -- making it the ideal reference companion for materials scientists and engineers with an interest in magnetic and superconducting materials. * Contains in excess of 130 articles, taken from the award-winning Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology, including ScienceDirect updates not available in the original set. * Each article discusses one aspect of magnetic and superconducting materials and includes photographs, line drawings and tables to aid the understanding of the topic at hand. * Cross-referencing guides readers to articles covering subjects of related interest.4.2 White Goods The domestic appliances most often associated with motors are refrigerators, washing machines, and dish washers. On the whole ... Fisher aamp; Paykel also make a low-profile pump motor for use in dishwashers (Fig. 6). Again anbsp;...
