Abstract

The temperature variation of the magnetic relaxation process obtained from DC magnetization measurements are investigated in fine Fe3O4 powder in the temperature range 5 K < T < 300 K. The maximum decay rate, S= d(M)/d[ln(t)], shows two distinct relaxation processes. The two processes remarkably display same pronounced peaks at 10, 35, 60 and 85 K below Verwey transition (TV) and different behavior above TV. At the same time, high field irreversibility in M (T) curves in zero-field cooled and field cooled (ZFC-FC) processes and considerable increase in coercivity have also been observed below TV. This is related to the freezing of disordered spins in a reorganization of domain structure.
