Magnetic Anisotropy And Anisotropic Materials

Magnetic anisotropy is the dependence of magnetic properties on a preferred direction. Before elaborating the details of magnetic anisotropy, let's get some knowledge about several related terms defined as the follows: Sources of Magnetic Anisotropy Magnetocrystalline Anisotropy: the atomic structure of a crystal introduces preferential directions for the magnetization. Shape Anisotropy: when a particle is [...]
