antiferromagnetism definition

  • noun:
    • a phenomenon, like ferromagnetism, where magnetic domain names line up in a consistent pattern, however with neighbouring electron spins pointing in other directions; products showing this impact are either ferrimagnetic or diamagnetic, and turn paramagnetic above the Neel temperature
    • magnetized area creates parallel but opposing spins; differs with temperature
    • a phenomenon, just like ferromagnetism, which magnetic domain names make in an everyday design, but with neighbouring electron spins pointing in opposing instructions; materials showing this impact are either ferrimagnetic or diamagnetic, and become paramagnetic above the Neel heat
    • magnetic field produces parallel but opposing spins; differs with temperature
