Über die Umkehr der remanenten Magnetisierung von Titanomagnetiten in Basaiten

Selfreversal of the remanent magnetization of titanomagnetites from basalts has been investigated as a matter of special magnetic properties of ferrites. The spontaneous and the remanent magnetization has been measured in the range between 77° K and 700° K. The spontaneous magnetization plotted vs temperature turns out to be similar toNéelsQ-,P-,L- orN-type curves. The occurence of different curves is interpreted as a function of differences in the chemical composition of the titanomagnetites. The N-type of the spontaneous magnetization shows selfreversal of the remanence, which only was observed below room temperature.
