Dependence of the Hysteresis Characteristics of Co-Au Core-Shell Nanoparticles on the Size of the Particles


Article Preview

Hysteresis loops were plotted and dependence of coercive field, residual saturation magnetization and saturation magnetization on size of the Co-Au core-shell nanoparticles were calculated within the developed model. It was shown that decrease in the size of nanoparticles leads to decrease of the abovementioned characteristics. Calculated values of the hysteresis characteristics ​​are in good agreement with the experimental data.
