Spin Glasses and Mictomagnets — Revisited

  • J. A. Mydosh

Abstract

A critical survey of the extensive experimental data for spin glass alloys is undertaken with the aim of drawing some basic conclusions and indicating those areas in need of additional investigation. Comparison is made between the spin glasses and the better understood “giant moment” systems in order to gain further insight into the nature of random magnetic alloys. A phenomenological model is presented to connect the various experiments, and some conjectures about the future directions of this research are offered.
