Isothermal remanent magnetisation parameters (IRM20, IRM200) and saturated isothermal remanent magnetisation (SIRM) were measured in a Molspin flux-gate magnetometer after magnetisation in a Molspin pulse magnetiser (induced at 20 mT, 200 mT, and 850 mT).
Since, as Gregory observed, `nothing is so easy as for the magnetiser to render himself .
