Magnets and magnetic devices are objects that produce a magnetic field. This field is invisible but is responsible for the most notable property of a magnet: a force that pulls on other magnetic materials such as iron. A permanent magnet is an object made from a material that is magnetised and creates its own persistent magnetic field. An every day example is a refrigerator magnet used to hold notes on a refrigerator door. Materials that can be magnetised are called ferromagnetic. These include iron, nickel, cobalt amongst others. Several materials respond to magnetism, though not as strongly as those listed.
