Influence of interaction of phonons with a paramagnetic impurity on the strength properties of polymers

Solid State Physics


The strength characteristics of polymers with a paramagnetic impurity in an external magnetic field are considered. It is shown that because of spin-phonon interaction the strength of a polymer should grow with increasing magnetic field at low temperatures when mainly the lowest-lying spin levels are populated. The dependence of the increase in the strength on the magnetic field is different for Kramers and non Kramers ions. It is shown that an increase in the strength upon application of a magnetic field can be observed even for polymers and solids which are not paramagnetic in the unloaded state. This is because an external mechanical force initiates changes in the structure of the solid and, consequently, can give rise to paramagnetism in the system.
