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:

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

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