Canted antiferromagnetism: hematite /​ Allan Henry Morrish. Author. Morrish, Allan H. Published. Singapore: World Scientific, c Physical Description. This text offers an extensive treatment of canted antiferromagnetism involving the Dzialoshinskii interaction as applied to hematite, the stable form of ferric oxide. Since then, the history of canted antiferromagnetism and hematite are inexorably intertwined. Indeed, hematite may be considered to be the prototype for the.

Open to the public ; Diamagnetism is a fundamental property of all matter, although it is usually very weak. If the A and B sublattice moments are exactly equal but opposite, the net moment is zero. Domains; Magnetization Processes Another hysteresis property is hmeatite coercivity of remanence Hr. The main distinction is that in some materials there is no collective interaction of atomic magnetic moments, whereas in other materials there is a very strong interaction between atomic moments.

Spin canting

This may antiderromagnetism surprising to some, but all matter is magnetic. The various hysteresis parameters are not solely intrinsic properties but are dependent on grain size, domain state, stresses, and temperature. If we plot M vs H, we see:.

This type of magnetic ordering is called antiferromagnetism. In ionic compounds, such as oxides, more complex forms of magnetic ordering can occur as a result of the crystal structure.


These interactions are produced by electronic cantted forces and result in a parallel or antiparallel alignment of atomic moments. This single location in Victoria: The spontaneous magnetization is the net magnetization that exists inside a uniformly magnetized microscopic volume in the absence of a field.

Diamagnetic substances are composed of atoms which have no net magnetic moments ie. The saturation magnetization is the maximum induced magnetic moment that can be obtained in a magnetic field H sat ; beyond this field no further increase in magnetization occurs.

The origin of magnetism lies in the orbital and spin motions of electrons and how the electrons interact with one another. These 2 locations in New South Wales: The paramagnetism of the matrix minerals in natural samples can be significant if the concentration of magnetite is very small. This is the reverse field which, when applied and then removed, reduces the saturation remanence to zero. The magnetic structure is composed of two magnetic sublattices called A and B separated by oxygens.

It’s just that some materials are much more magnetic than others.

The remaining three are so weakly magnetic that they are usually thought of as “nonmagnetic”. Ferromagnetic and ferrimagnetic materials are usually what we consider as being magnetic ie. However, when exposed to a field, a negative magnetization is produced and thus csnted susceptibility is negative.


The Curie temperature is also an intrinsic property and is a diagnostic parameter that can be used for mineral identification. In addition to the Curie temperature and saturation magnetization, ferromagnets can retain a memory of an applied field once it is removed. The gaps come in two flavors:.

A simple representation of the magnetic spins in a ferrimagnetic oxide is shown here. One of the most important atoms with unpaired electrons is cated.

When you think of magnetic materials, you probably think of iron, nickel or magnetite. Doped [alpha]-Fe[subscript 2]O[subscript 3].

This results antoferromagnetism a temperature dependent susceptibility, known as the Curie Law. This particular arrangement of cations on the A and B sublattice is called an inverse spinel structure.
