Sketch of the interplay of single crystal/grain properties and alignment or distribution in defining magnetic anisotropy.
Sketch of the interplay of single crystal/grain properties and alignment or distribution in defining magnetic anisotropy. Note that the degree of alignment shown here is equally important for magnetocrystalline and shape anisotropy. Natural rocks contain a complex assembly of minerals and grain populations (e.g., ferromagnetic and para/diamagnetic grains represented here in black and gray, respectively) and therefore a superposition of anisotropy contributions.
