Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to provide a valuable forum for scientists to share their new findings related to both fundamental and applied research on magnetic hysteresis, which is a key property of all ferromagnetic materials. In this issue, special attention will be paid to two scientific problems. The first is predicting the behavior of a magnetic system during magnetization reversal, taking into account the known parameters of the system. Here, the most important topics are the fundamental theory of ferromagnetism and the modeling of hysteresis processes. The second is the determination of intrinsic properties of materials based on the observed magnetic hysteresis. On this basis, the topics to be covered can include but are not limited to:

1. Theory and modeling of magnetic hysteresis

  • Ab initio theory of ferromagnetism, exchange interaction
  • Brown and related equations, statement of problem and solutions
  • Hysteresis curve modeling and calculation
  • Magnetization dynamics modeling
  • Novel methodic of precise hysteresis investigations
  • FORC analysis for magnetic systems
2. Magnetic hysteresis versus material composition and properties
  • Structural properties and magnetic hysteresis
  • Domain walls: form, creation (nucleation), and propagation
  • Low-dimensional magnetism, novel 2D magnetic systems
  • Magnetic hysteresis and dimensional effects
  • Tailoring magnetic anisotropy in different kinds of materials
  • Mechanical and electric field control of ferromagnetism
  • Magnetic hysteresis in multiferroics

Electrospun magnetic nanofibers are promising for a variety of applications in biomedicine, energy storage, filtration or spintronics. The surface morphology of nanofiber mats plays an important role for defined application areas. In addition, the distribution of magnetic particles in nanofibers exerts an influence on the final properties of nanofiber mats. A simple method for the production of magnetic nanofiber mats by the addition of magnetic nanoparticles in an electrospinning polymer solution was used in this study. In this work, magnetic nanofibers (MNFs) were prepared by needle-free electrospinning technique from poly(acrylonitrile) (PAN) in the low-toxic solvent dimethy lsulfoxide (DMSO) and 20 wt% Fe3O4 at different parameter conditions such as PAN concentration, voltage and ultrasonic bath. The distribution of nanoparticles in the fiber matrix was investigated as well as the chemical and morphological properties of the resulting magnetic nanofibers. In addition, the surface morphology of magnetic nanofiber mats was studied by confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM), scanning electron microscope (SEM), Fourier transform infrared microscope (FTIR) and ImageJ software, and distribution of Fe3O4 particles in the matrix was investigated by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX).

A computationally efficient hysteresis model, based on a standalone deep neural network, with the capability of reproducing the evolution of the magnetization under arbitrary excitations, is here presented and applied in the simulation of a commercial grain-oriented electrical steel sheet. The main novelty of the proposed approach is to embed the past history dependence, typical of hysteretic materials, in the neural net, and to illustrate an optimized training procedure. Firstly, an experimental investigation was carried out on a sample of commercial GO steel by means of an Epstein equipment, in agreement with the international standard. Then, the traditional Preisach model, identified only using three measured symmetric hysteresis loops, was exploited to generate the training set. Once the network was trained, it was validated with the reproduction of the other measured hysteresis loops and further hysteresis processes obtained by the Preisach simulations. The model implementation at a low level of abstraction shows a very high computational speed and minimal memory allocation, allowing a possible coupling with finite-element analysis (FEA).

Bi-magnetic core/shell nanoparticles were synthesized by a two-step high-temperature decomposition method of metal acetylacetonate salts. Transmission electron microscopy confirmed the formation of an ultrathin shell (~0.6 nm) of NiO and NiFe2O4 around the magnetically hard 8 nm CoFe2O4 core nanoparticle. Magnetization measurements showed an increase in the coercivity of the single-phase CoFe2O4 seed nanoparticles from ~1.2 T to ~1.5 T and to ~2.0 T for CoFe2O4/NiFe2O4 and CoFe2O4/NiO, respectively. The NiFe2O4 shell also increases the magnetic volume of particles and the dipolar interparticle interactions. In contrast, the NiO shell prevents such interactions and keeps the magnetic volume almost unchanged. Full article

Ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) linewidth (LW) is a tool for studying the high frequency properties of magnetic materials for their application in high-speed devices. Here, we investigate different mechanisms which determine FMR damping in bilayer ferromagnetic/antiferromagnetic (F/AF and AF/F) exchange bias systems. Variations of FMR LW with the thickness and deposition order of the F and AF layers were studied, as well as their correlation with the exchange bias field and roughness of the sample surface. We observed much larger LW in AF/F structures compared with F/AF samples. It was found that neither the exchange bias nor surface/interface roughness in the samples could explain the difference in LW for F/AF and AF/F samples. Instead, the different underlayer microstructure influenced the grainsize, leading to different angular dispersion of magnetization and different internal stray field in F-layers, promoting a different intensity of magnon scattering and FMR damping in F/AF and AF/F samples.
