Ferrimagnetism in the Mean-Field Approximation of the Mixed Spin-3/2 and Spin-5/2 Ising System

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

Using the Mean-field theory based on Bogoliubov inequality for the free energy, a ferrimagnetic mixed spin-3/2 and spin-5/2 Ising model with different anisotropies is investigated. The free energy of a mixed spin Ising ferrimagnetic system from MF approximation of the Hamiltonian is calculated. By minimizing the free energy, we obtain the equilibrium magnetizations and compensation points. In particular, we investigate the effect of a single-ion anisotropy on the magnetic properties including the compensation phenomenon, in order to clarify the characteristic behaviours in a series of molecular-based magnets . The phase diagram of the system is also discussed in the anisotropy dependence of transition temperature. Our results of this model predict the existence of many (two or three) compensation points in the ordered system on a simple cubic lattice.
