Usage

In literature:

The other portion of the current from D flows through the coil M, and it becomes magnetised at the same time that the coil N becomes demagnetised.

In science:

Susceptibility of ferromagnets generally varies as the inverse of demagnetisation factor and is expected to be constant at low temperature in absence of any further magnetic transition.
Changeover from Glassy ferromagnetism of the orbital domain state to long range ferromagnetic ordering in La{_{0.9}}Sr_{0.1}MnO{_3}
Such demagnetisation based studies is considered to give a systematically better approximation of the ground state of disordered systems as reported in Ref36 .
Changeover from Glassy ferromagnetism of the orbital domain state to long range ferromagnetic ordering in La{_{0.9}}Sr_{0.1}MnO{_3}
To sum up these observations, a transverse anisotropy, competing with demagnetising energy, has to be invoked in order to maintain a stable diamond-like magnetic structure.
