On the condensed matter side, it is understood that the SO(5) formalism for high-[T.sub.C] superconductivity and antiferromagnetism is only an approximation (or effective field theory) [29,30] that arises in the long-wavelength low-energy limit of the physics of some underlying fundamental dynamics.

Large bond angle Cu-O-Cu was believed to result in large super exchange interaction, favored for antiferromagnetism while spiral ordering in certain crystallographic directions favors a ferroelectric phase in the same material.
The rest are spin-density-wave states, including both ferromagnetism (FM) and antiferromagnetism (AFM).
However, the complexes with L1 and L2 have shown lower values 1.5-1.6 BM maybe due to low symmetry expected at 1.73 BM when the orbital angular contribution is almost quenched [67] and may occur due to the presence of exchange coupled antiferromagnetism [68].
In antiferromagnetism, the atoms within an object have opposite magnetic moments and cancel each other out, which makes them line up in orderly patterns.

Future applications of nanostructures built one atom at a time, and that apply an unconventional form of magnetism called antiferromagnetism, could allow people and businesses to store 100 times more information in the same space.
For the first time, the researchers have managed to employ a special form of magnetism for data storage purposes, called antiferromagnetism. Different from ferromagnetism, which is used in conventional hard drives, the spins of neighboring atoms within antiferromagnetic material are oppositely aligned, rendering the material magnetically neutral on a bulk level.
Antiferromagnetism is a property of many transition elements and some metals.
Cuprates also show antiferromagnetism. And in both groups, superconductivity appears when scientists destabilize the antiferromagnetic order--through doping or by applying pressure--and magnetic orientations within the crystal start to fluctuate, switching from up to down.
Among other things, he studied Kondo materials and antiferromagnetism before turning his attention to scanning tunneling microscopy.
