The energy surface of a hexagonal element of Kagome spin ice consisting of six prolate magnetic islands is investigated as a function of applied magnetic field. Minimum energy paths for magnetic reversals are determined to estimate energy barriers and the transition rates estimated using harmonic transition state theory for magnetic systems. The overall… CONTINUE READING
