Structural and magnetic characterization of ferrimagnetic microspheres — •Elena-Lorena Salabas, Marina Spasova, and Michael Farle — Experimentelle Tieftemperaturphysik, Gerhard-Mercator Universität Duisburg, Lotharstrasse 1, D-47048 Duisburg, Germany
The structural and magnetic properties of magnetic colloids
consisting of a diamagnetic core (640 nm polystyrene) and a
multi-ferrimagnetic shell (12 nm Fe3O4 nanoparticles) are
discussed. The core-shell microspheres were synthesized by
step-wise electrostatic adsorption. The homogeneity of the coating was
characterized by transmission electron and atomic force microscopy. The
aggregation process and one dimensional pattern formation in an external
applied magnetic field was also
investigated. In the presence of an homogeneous in plane magnetic field
(0.2 T) chains with a length of up to 2 mm were formed . Magnetic
properties were studied by ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) and SQUID. The
hysteresis loops at 5, 42, 120 and 300 K show typical features of
At low temperature (5 K) a coercivity of 245 Oe and a remanent
magnetization of 39 % of the saturation value were found.
Polar and azimuthal angular dependent FMR measurements at 9.51 GHz and 300
K reveal an anisotropy field (Han = 600 Oe) and a long range magnetic
order in chains induced by dipole-dipole interaction.
