Exchange coupling constant in micromagnetic simulation

Hi, all.

I'm wondering if anyone's done some simulation of magnetic material with LLG equation. The question is where can I find the value of exchange constant for a material.

In LLG equation, the exchange constant is in the unit of "J/m", and the typical value is 10^-11 J/m, for some magnetic metal as far as I know. But I can't find a handbook or any online material summarizing this parameter for different materials. It seems complicated to derive based on the structure. Does anyone know where to look for such values?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure if you still require this information but I am doing some similar work, using Nmag. The manual for this tool contains some generic value's mostly for Permalloy (Nickel-Iron) which should be about 13e-12 J/m .

If you do find a better source please let me know as I am looking for something more concrete.

All the best

I was confronted with the same problem, but the answer was in wikipedia:
Look up A = Exchange-stiffness constant
