  • However, in ferromagnetism, which is many times stronger, they are aligned collectively, which makes the understanding of the physics much more difficult.

  • Anti-ferromagnetism is an ordered state with important properties.

  • Magnetic atoms can have their moments all ordered in the same direction in each domain (ferromagnetism), with alternating "up" and "down" moments of the same size (simple antiferromagnets) or with more complicated patterns including different magnetic sublattices (ferrimagnets, etc).

  • However, by then ferromagnetism was almost everywhere and had driven nearly all survivors into hiding places and the Long Sleep.

  • In summary we can say that Dirac's spin interpretation cannot be used to reject ideas about the orbital nature of ferromagnetism and that there is an essential reaction density trapped in any magnetic field.

  • Examples of the latter case is the transition between liquid and gas at the critical point, and from ferromagnetism to paramagnetism in metals such as iron, nickel and cobalt.

  • Examples are the transition between liquid and gas and the transition between ferromagnetism and paramagnetism.

  • Three states of magnetism have long been recognised, die -, para - and ferromagnetism.

  • The electric field-controlled ferromagnetism reported in this study shows that without passing an electric current, electronic devices could be operated and functioning based on the collective spin behavior of the carriers.
