Superferromagnetic Domain State Dynamics In Discontinuous Cofe/Al2o3, Christian Binek Jan 2004

Superferromagnetic Domain State Dynamics In Discontinuous Cofe/Al2o3, Christian Binek

Christian Binek Publications

Magnetization hysteresis and AC susceptibility measurements were performed on the discontinuous metal–insulator multilayer [Co80Fe20(1.4 nm)/Al2O3(3 nm)]10. CoFe forms ferromagnetic single-previous domain term particles being embedded in the Al2O3 matrix. Due to strong dipolar inter-particle interactions a “previous superferromagnetic term” correlation of particle moments was previously stated. The dynamical magnetic properties of the superferromagnet can be understood in the framework of previous domain term wall motion in an impure ferromagnet. Kinetic simulations are employed, which are based on field and temperature-dependent previous domain term wall velocities. The magnetization hysteresis as well as the AC susceptibility ...


Domain State Susceptibility In Fecl2/Copt-Heterostructures, Christian Binek Sep 2001

Domain State Susceptibility In Fecl2/Copt-Heterostructures, Christian Binek

Christian Binek Publications

Magnetic heterostructures with perpendicular anisotropy consisting of antiferromagnetic (111)-oriented FeCl2 single crystals and thin ferromagnetic CoPt-multilayers are investigated by ac-susceptometry after cooling in various axial magnetic fields to below the Néel temperature. The freezing process drives the system into a metastable antiferromagnetic domain state which gives rise to a huge excess contribution to the complex parallel susceptibility on heating in zero magnetic field. Its glow curve-like temperature dependence is modeled within the framework of a simple analytical approach. It involves the susceptibility of thermally activated clusters originating from antiferromagnetic stacking faults as well as the contribution of pairs of ...


Light Diffraction By Field-Induced Non-Periodic Magnetic Domain Structures In Fecl2, Christian Binek May 1993

Light Diffraction By Field-Induced Non-Periodic Magnetic Domain Structures In Fecl2, Christian Binek

Christian Binek Publications

The magnetic-field-induced mixed phase of the meta magnet FeCl2 gives rise to reduced transmittivity of circularly polarized light. Within the framework of the diffraction theory of thin random magnetic phase gratings and the assumption of field-dependent refractive indices of the antiferromagnetic domains the field dependence of the transmission is perfectly modeled.
