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 theory of ferromagnetism is also called domain theory of ferromagnetism. It has following points: Continue reading “Weiss theory of ferromagnetism”
