Dobrogowski, W.; Maziewski, A.; Zablotskii, V. – European Journal of Physics, 2007
We describe our experience in building a remote laboratory for teaching magnetic domains. Fulfilling the proposed on-line experiments, students can observe and study magnetization processes that are often difficult to explain with written material. It is proposed that networks of remotely accessible laboratories could be integrated in the Global…
