Gyromagnetic Ratios for Iron, Cobalt and Certain Binary Alloys of Iron, Cobalt and Nickel


Kenny, George Scott (1952) Gyromagnetic Ratios for Iron, Cobalt and Certain Binary Alloys of Iron, Cobalt and Nickel. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/3SCW-GY69.


Gyromagnetic ratios for iron, cobalt and many binary alloys of iron, cobalt and nickel were determined by measurements on the Einsten-de Haas effect such as made in this laboratory previously. Improvements were made in the methods of eliminating large quadrature torques. For each series of binary alloys the gyromagnetic ratio was found to vary linearly or nearly linearly with concentra­tion. For those materials studied here previously there is good agreement between the new results and the older.
