Magnetic Susceptibilities

  • Daniel D Stancil
  • Anil Prabhakar

The previous chapters concentrated on the origins of magnetic moments in individual ions or atoms and collective excitations of spin systems coupled by the exchange interaction. In this chapter, we will discuss the magnetic properties of macroscopic media composed of very large numbers of individual moments and the dependence of these properties on the magnetic field. Specifically, we are interested in the net magnetization (magnetic dipole moment per unit volume) that exists either spontaneously or in response to an applied magnetic field.
