The influence of the level of the external magnetic field and the length of the core on its magnetic moment. Due to the axial symmetry of the field, the magnetic moment vector [??] of the core under consideration has only an axial projection in cylindrical coordinates
The relationship between the magnetic moment and the angular momentum is called the "gyromagnetic ratio" and has the value "e/2m".
Neutron diffraction studies of the B2-ordered Fe-Al alloys with Al concentrations of 34-43 at.% confirmed the existence of spatial correlations between the magnetic moments with a coherence length of about 5 nm, which were interpreted in terms of spin density wave.
