Abstract

Using Monte Carlo simulations, magnetic properties of the ferromagnetic nanoparticles of Ising spin-1 are investigated in the framework of the Ising model. The system is considered to have a Rubik’s cube structure composed of nanocubes having an equivalent exchange coupling, while, between adjacent nanocubes, the exchange coupling is assumed to vary. Both size effects and system parameters’ influence on phase diagrams of the nanosystem are studied. Thus, the magnetic properties of the system such as the critical temperature, the magnetization, and the coercive field are computed.
