Abstract: We report unconventional magnetic properties on NiO nanoparticles of an average diameter similar to 5.8(7) nm obtained by coprecipitation method. To investigate the effect of the intra and interparticles interactions in the magnetic properties nanoparticles were dispersed in a polyvinyl-pyrrodone matrix at two different concentrations. X-ray, ac, and dc magnetization and ferromagnetic resonance experiments were carried out on powder and dispersed NiO systems. Our results show that dispersed and concentrated samples exhibit following two different magnetic behaviors: (i) a high temperature peak related to the blocking of the particle core and (ii) a low temperature maximum likely related to the freezing of the frustrated spins on surface particle. Besides, we have observed that the low temperature maximum is not field-dependent and depend strongly on the distance among particles. This result can be understood taking account the decreasing of the dipolar interaction to more dispersed samples. (C) 2010 American Institute of Physics. [doi: 10.1063/1.3459890]
