This book is devoted to the mathematical description of interesting phenomena which occur in solids, such as ferromagnetism, antiferromagnetism and superconductivity.
If individual particles of these powders are crystalline on the order of 1 m then they will have antiferromagnetic coupling similar to that of bulk, but if they are agglomerations of much finer particles, say 19 nm (43), then these particles will lose their antiferromagnetism and exhibit superparamagnetism (6).
