Material magnetisation

    Greetings !

    I was wondering if there are materials that have
    high magnetic permeability, yet aren't really ferromagnets -
    would not considrably increase the external field ?

    Alternatively, how about materials with high permeability
    that need relatively high fields to induce their own strong
    fields. For example, iron in magnetic field of a few Gauss will
    already produce a 1 T field, so how about materials that will
    need say hundreds of Gauss before they're really induced
    to Tesla scale field magnitudes ?

    Thanks a lot.

    Live long and prosper.

    Could you be more specific, and restate your question in terms of B, H, M, and [tex] \mu [/tex] ?

    There appears to be an apparent contradiction in the statement of your problem, but I'm going to wait till you rewrite it.

    Maybe my question was somewhat confusing.
    But it's simple really - I'm looking for a material with
    high permeability and low induced field. Or alternatively,
    high permeability and low induced field at least when the
    external field is below, say, 10^-2 T (100 Gauss).
    (Low, in this case, would be say - up to 100 times
    the external field at most.)

    Thanks. :smile:

    Ah... never mind, found the numbers on one type of
    Mumetal, something like 1 to 300 induction at a few Gauss,
    fits my secret weapon plans... :biggrin:

    Hahaha,
    Will anyone be spared ?

    Sure, those who pay up-front... :biggrin:

    btw, nice to have you back BH, haven't seen you around
    for some time now. :smile:
