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.

antiferromanetism The exchange force is a quantum mechanical phenomenon due to the relative orientation of the spins of two electron. Language English View all editions Prev Next edition 2 of 2. Under these conditions, paramagnetic susceptibility is proportional to the total iron content. A simple representation of the magnetic spins in a ferrimagnetic oxide is shown here. This occurs at a particular temperature called the Curie temperature T C.

View online Borrow Buy Freely available Show 0 more links The spontaneous magnetization is the net magnetization that exists inside a uniformly magnetized microscopic volume in the absence of a field.

The magnitude of this magnetization, at 0 K, is dependent on the spin magnetic moments of electrons. At normal temperatures and in moderate fields, the paramagnetic susceptibility is small but larger than the diamagnetic contribution. Neutron Diffraction; Magnetic Structure 3. However, the individual magnetic moments do not interact magnetically, and like diamagnetism, the magnetization is zero when the field is removed. Because hysteresis parameters are dependent on grain size, they are useful for magnetic grain sizing of natural samples.


A typical plot of magnetization vs temperature for magnetite sntiferromagnetism shown below. Antiferromagnwtism may be surprising to some, but all matter is magnetic. One antiferromagnetidm of magnetic ordering is call ferrimagnetism. In ionic compounds, such as oxides, more complex forms of magnetic ordering can occur as a result of the crystal structure.

Unlike paramagnetic materials, the atomic moments in these materials exhibit very strong interactions.

Ferromagnetic materials exhibit parallel alignment of moments resulting in large net magnetization even in the absence of a magnetic field. Skip to content Skip to search. 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. In ferrimagnets, the magnetic moments of the A and B sublattices are not equal and result in a net magnetic moment.

The origin of magnetism lies in the orbital and spin motions of electrons and how the electrons interact with one another. Author Morrish, Allan H.

Separate different tags with a comma. Many iron bearing minerals are paramagnetic at room temperature. Diamagnetism is a fundamental property of all matter, although it is usually very weak. Even though electronic exchange forces in ferromagnets are very large, thermal energy eventually overcomes the exchange and produces a randomizing effect.

If we plot M vs H, we see:. Magnetite is a well known ferrimagnetic cajted.

The best way to introduce the different types of magnetism is to describe how materials respond to magnetic fields. The paramagnetism of the matrix minerals in natural samples can be significant if the concentration of magnetite is very small. The exchange interactions are mediated by the oxygen anions. This single location in Western Australia: However, it is not foolproof because different magnetic minerals, in antiferromagentism, can have the same Curie temperature.

These interactions are produced by electronic exchange forces and result in a parallel or antiparallel alignment of atomic moments. You also may like to try some of these bookshopswhich may or may not sell this item.

The two crystal sites are very different and result in complex forms of exchange interactions of the iron ions between and within the two types of sites. It’s just that some materials are much more magnetic than others. There is a big difference between paramagnetic and ferromagnetic susceptibility. The spins on the A sublattice are antiparallel to those on the B sublattice.

Classes of Magnetic Materials

The Curie temperature is also an intrinsic property and is a diagnostic parameter that can be used for mineral identification. However, ferro- and ferrimagnets have very different magnetic ordering. The various hysteresis parameters are not solely intrinsic properties but are dependent on grain size, domain state, stresses, and temperature.
