Abstract

The magnetic microstructure of nanostructured ferromagnets is represented by an ensemble of stochastic magnetic domains—regions with dimensions of the length of magnetic orientation coherency. It is shown that the curves displaying the approach of magnetization to saturation make it possible to determine the dimension of the element of the micromagnetic structure, i.e., the size of the stochastic domain and the constant of the effective anisotropy in this element, the size of the element of the nanostructure and the constant its local anisotropy, as well as the dimensionality of the exchange-coupled ferromagnetic nanoparticles.
