Lagrange Strain Tensor

The
strain tensor, ε, is a
symmetric tensor used to quantify the strain of an object
undergoing a small 3
-
dimensional deformation:

the diagonal coefficients ε
ii

are the relative change in length in the direction
of the
i

direction (along the
x
i
-
axis)

;

the other terms ε
ij

= 1/2 γ
ij

(
i

j
) are the shear strains, i.e. half the variation
of the right angle (assuming a small cube of matter before deformation).

The deformation of an object is defined by a tensor field, i.e., this strain tensor is
defined for every point of the object. In case of small deformations, the strain
tensor is the
Green tensor or Cauchy's infinitesimal strain tensor, defined by
the equation:

Where
u

represents the displacement field of the object's
configuration (i.e., the difference between the object's
configuration and its natural state). This is the 'symmetric
part' of the Jacobian matrix. The 'antisymmetric part' is
called the small rotation tensor
.

M.Rotter „Magnetostriction“ Course Lorena 2007

T

stress tensor

is defined by:

where the
dF
i

are the components of the
resultant force vector acting on a small
area
dA

which can be represented by a
vector
dA
j

perpendicular to the area
element, facing outwards and with
length equal to the area of the element.
In elementary mechanics, the subscripts
are often denoted x,y,z rather than 1,2,3.

Hookes Law

Stress tensor is
symmetric,

otherwise the volume element would
rotate (to seet this look at zy and yz component in figure)

Magnetostriction

Magnetostriction is a property of
magnetic materials that
causes them to change their shape when subjected to a magnetic
field. The effect was first identified in 1842 by James Joule
when observing a sample of nickel
.

Susceptibility

Pauli paramagnetism is a weak effect
compared to paramagnetism in
insulators (in insulators one electron at
each ion contributes, in metals only the
electrons at the Fermi level contribute).

The small size of the paramagnetic
susceptibility of most metals was a
puzzle until Pauli pointed out that is
was a consequence of the fact that
electrons obey Fermi Dirac rather
than classical statistics.

Direct Exchange between delocalized Electrons

Spontaneously Split bands: e.g. Fe M=2.2
μ
B
/f.u. is non integer

.... this is strong evidence for band ferromagnetism

Mean field Model
: all spins feel the same exchange field
λM
produced by all their neighbors, this exchange field can
magnetize the electron gas spontaneously via the Pauli
Paramagnetism, if λ and χ
P

are large anough.

as a whole can save energy by becoming ferromagnetic ?

Stoner Criterion

Edmund C.
Stoner

(1899
-
1968)

... Coulomb Effects must be
strong and density of states at
the Fermi energy must be large
in order to get sponatneous
ferrmagnetism in metals.

33

M.Rotter „Magnetostriction“ Course Lorena 2007

Spontaneous Ferromagnetism splits the spin up and spin
down bands by
Δ

If the Stoner criterion is not fulfilled, the susceptibility of
the electron gas may still be enhanced by the exchange
interactions:
