Ferrite may refer to:
  • Ferrite (iron)
    Ferrite (iron)
    Ferrite or alpha iron is a materials science term for iron, or a solid solution with iron as the main constituent, with a body centred cubic crystal structure. It is the component which gives steel and cast iron their magnetic properties, and is the classic example of a ferromagnetic material...

    , iron or iron alloys with a body centred cubic crystal structure.
  • Ferrite (magnet)
    Ferrite (magnet)
    Ferrites are chemical compounds consisting of ceramic materials with iron oxide as their principal component. Many of them are magnetic materials and they are used to make permanent magnets, ferrite cores for transformers, and in various other applications.Many ferrites are spinels with the...

     (e.g. Fe3O4 or BaFe12O19), ferrimagnetic ceramic materials used in magnetic applications.
  • Ferrite bead
    Ferrite bead
    A ferrite bead is a passive electric component used to suppress high frequency noise in electronic circuits. It is a specific type of electronic choke. Ferrite beads employ the mechanism of high dissipation of high frequency currents in a ferrite to build high frequency noise suppression devices...

    , components placed on the end of data cables to reduce interference.
  • Ferrite core
    Ferrite core
    A ferrite core is a structure on which the windings of electric transformers and other wound components such as inductors are formed. It is used for its properties of high magnetic permeability coupled with low electrical conductivity .There are two broad applications for ferrite cores which...

    , a structure on which the windings of electric transformers and other wound components are formed.
  • Calcium aluminoferrite
    Calcium aluminoferrite
    Calcium aluminoferrite is a dark brown crystalline phase commonly found in cements. In the cement industry it is termed ferrite...

    , Ca2(Al,Fe)2O5, a mineral found in cements
