Spin reorientation transition: phase diagrams and entropy change
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 21 March 2011
In this paper we review the phase diagram and derive the entropy change for spin reorientation transitions by considering first order magnetization process theory with temperature dependent magneto-crystalline anisotropy constants. We derive the magnetic field-induced entropy change Δs for a transition between easy axis and easy plane, showing that for alternating magnetic field, Δs has a change of sign at the reorientation temperature, while for rotating magnetic field its sign is definite. We apply the model to CoZn W-type barium ferrite.
