This chapter discusses the materials and physical characteristics of magnetic materials, such as ferrites and iron dust cores. Although not essential reading, it does contain useful information, even if the reader has no intention of making his own inductors or transformers. Topics, such as magnetic saturation and efficiency are discussed.
