Temporal Stability of Magnetization of ε-In0.24Fe1.76O3 Nanoparticles
The kinetics of spontaneous demagnetization in nanoparticles of the exotic epsilon-phase of indium-doped iron(III) oxide (ε-In0.24Fe1.76O3) has been studied using the method of accelerated testing of magnets for temporal stability in a magnetization-reversal field. Time dependences of the magnetization of nanoparticles measured in a wide range of magnetic fields exhibited rectification in semilogarithmic coordinates. The dependence of the magnetic viscosity on the magnetic field has been measured and used for determining the fluctuation field and activation volume. A relationship between the magnetic viscosity and magnetic noise caused by random thermoinduced magnetization reversal in separate nanoparticles is established.
