|Title:||Effective anisotropy field variation of magnetite nanoparticles with size reduction|
De Biasi, E
|Abstract:||Size effect on the internal magnetic structure has been investigated on weakly interacting magnetite (Fe(3)O(4)) nanoparticles by ferromagnetic resonance experiments at 9.5 GHz as a function of temperature (4-300 K). A set of three samples with mean particle size of 2.5 nm, 5.0 nm and 13.0 nm, respectively, were prepared by chemical route with narrow size distribution (sigma < 0.27). To minimize the dipolar interaction, the particles were dispersed in a liquid and a solid polymer matrix at similar to 0.6% in mass. By freezing the liquid suspension with an applied external field, a textured was obtained. Thus, both random and textured suspensions were studied and compared. The ferromagnetic resonance experiments in zero-field-cooled and field-cooled conditions were carried out to study the size effect on the effective anisotropy field. The dc magnetization measurements clearly show that the internal magnetic structure was strongly affected by the particle size.|
