Use "antiferromagnetic" in a sentence
  • "The cluster of atoms is described as antiferromagnetic - a rare quality in which each atom in the array has an opposed magnetic orientation."
  • "(Albert Fert's original article) ● Enhanced magnetoresistance in layered magnetic structures with antiferromagnetic interlayer exchange by G. Binasch et al, Physical Review B, Vol. 39, No. 7 (1989)."
  • "Because two years before that time I had discovered the antiferromagnetic interlayer exchange coupling and I reported on that in various conferences and Albert Fert heard one of these talks and decided that, for the kind of physics he is doing, namely magnetoresistance effects in diluted alloys, that would be an interesting configuration to investigate this effect also in the layered structures with the antiferromagnetic exchange coupling."
