Magnetic Properties of Frozen Magneto-Active Elastomers
In the present paper we report temperature dependent magnetization measurements done on a magneto-active elastomers (MAEs) consisting of a siloxane rubber filled with carbonyl iron particles. The experiments performed in this study are similar to the conventional Zero-Field-Cooled and Field-Cooled magnetic tests. To the best of our knowledge, this approach, successfully used for studies on magnetic fluids, has never ever been applied to MAE. This test allowed us to reveal the effect of change of MAE structure under the action of an external magnetic field.
