villari effect

Magnetostriction is a reversible effect because change in magnetsation can be produced by applying stress on the material. This effect is called Villari effect. Reference: This article is referred from my book “electrical engineering materials” having ISBN 978-81-272-5069-0

Magnetostriction

When a ferromagnetic material is magnetised, its length either expands or contracts in the direction of the magnetisation. This effect is called magnetostriction or Joule effect. In other words, magnetostriction refers to the changes in the dimensions of a ferromagnetic … Continue reading

Effect of temperature on ferromagnetism

As the temperature of the ferromagnetic material is raised, the thermal energy of the atoms increases. At very high temperature, the thermal energy is sufficient to break the domains and ferromagnetic materials become paramagnetic. Reference: This article is referred from … Continue reading

Weiss theory of ferromagnetism

To explain the phenomenon of ferromagnetism, Weiss proposed a hypothetical concept of ferromagnetic domains. He postulated that the neighboring atoms of the ferromagnetic materials, due to certain mutual exchange interactions, from several number of very small regions, called domains. Weiss … Continue reading

Domain

Definition of domain: Let us today understand the concept of domain: Domain is a region in a ferromagnetic material where all the magnetic dipole moments are aligned. The domains are of microscopic size of the order of 10-8 to 10-12 … Continue reading

Susceptibility of antiferromagnetic materials

The susceptibility of antiferromagnetic materials are small and positive. It increases with the rise in temperature. The susceptibility becomes maximum at Neel temperature and decreases with further rise in temperature. Reference: This article is referred from my book “electrical engineering … Continue reading

Neel temperature

The magnetisation of antiferromagnetic materials depends on temperature. The magnetisation increases with the rise in temperature and becomes maximum at a particular temperature. Above this particular temperature, magnetisation decreases. This particular temperature at which magnetisation is maximum is called Neel … Continue reading

Examples of antiferromagnetic materials

In the presence of the strong magnetic field, antiferromagnetic materials are weakly magnetised in the direction the field. This property of the materials is called antiferromagnetism and the materials which exhibit this propert are called antiferromagnetic materials. Examples of antiferromagnetic … Continue reading
