Monte Carlo Simulation of Configurational Anisotropy of Magnetic Cluster


Article Preview

In this paper, the spin configuration and the configurational anisotropy of the clusters were studied by Monte Carlo simulations. An easy magnetization directions and a configurational anisotropy were found for the clusters using the hysteresis and spin configurations in different magnetization processes, and the simulated natural angle and energy distribution. It is considered that the configurational anisotropy is mainly attributed to the non-uniformity in spin configurations.
