Magnetic field solenoid with diamagnetic core

  1. Jun 2, 2015 #1
    For a solenoid as on the picture with a diamagnetic in the middle, the total B-field generated will come from both the free currents inside the solenoid as well as the induced magnetic field from the diagmagnetic material. But will the magnetic field attributed to the bound currents inside the diagmagnetic only contribute to the magnetic field in regions inside the diamagnetic?
    All the formulas in my book seem to suggest so since the permitivity outside the diagmagnetic is just the permitivity of free space. On the other hand it seems weird that you don't feel the magnetic field from the diagmagnetic material even when you are very close to it!
