Since the discovery of magnetic lodestones in 600 BC described by ancient Greek philosophers, the mystery of magnetism has continued to intrigue. For thousands of years, these lodestones were more of a curiousity until medieval explorers discovered how to use them to produce a magnetic compass. The compass was studied and explained by William Gilbert in his 1600 treatise on magnetism called "de Magnete\1{3. In his work, Gilbert proposed the Earth itself to be magnetic, helping to open up… Expand
A Tool to Predict Coercivity in Magnetic Materials
Magnetic coercivity is often viewed to be lower in alloys with negligible (or zero) values of the anisotropy constant. However, this explains little about the dramatic drop in coercivity in FeNiExpand

Exchange bias systems studied by high resolution quantitative magnetic force microscopy
It is generally believed that exchange bias (EB) implies the presence of pinned uncompen- sated moments pin-UCS in the antiferromagnet (AF) layer that are coupled to the ferromagnet (F) layer. AnExpand
