Spin Fluctuations in Itinerant Electron Magnetism by Professor Tôru Moriya (auth.)

By Professor Tôru Moriya (auth.)

Ferromagnetism of metal structures, particularly these together with transition metals, has been a debatable topic of contemporary technological know-how for a very long time. This controversy sterns from the obvious twin personality of the d-electrons chargeable for magnetism in transition metals, i.e., they're itinerant elec­ trons defined via band conception of their flooring nation, whereas at finite tem­ peratures they exhibit quite a few homes that experience lengthy been attributed to a method which include neighborhood magnetic moments. the main commonly used instance of those homes is the Curie-Weiss legislations of magnetic susceptibility obeyed through just about all ferromagnets above their Curie temperatures. initially the matter appeared to be headquartered round no matter if the d-elec­ trons themselves are localized or itinerant. this query was once settled within the Nineteen Fifties and early Nineteen Sixties via a variety of experimental investigations, specifically via observations of d-electron Fermi surfaces in ferromagnetic transition metals. those observations are normally in keeping with the result of band calculations. Theoretical investigations on account that then have focused on explaining this twin personality of d-electron structures, taking account of the results of electron-electron correlations within the itinerant electron version. the matter in actual phrases is to review the spin density fluctuati·ons, that are ne­ glected within the mean-field or one-electron conception, and their impact at the actual properties.
