Yttrium iron garnet (YIG) powders with particle sizes of 9, 14, 25 and 60 nm have been synthesised and their magnetic properties have been studied as a function of particle size and temperature. The particles with sizes of 9 and 14 nm exhibited superparamagnetism. The blocking temperature (T-B) decreased with decreasing particle size, whereas the anisotropy constant (K) increased. The saturation magnetisation (M-s) decreased with decreasing particle size. These variations are attributed to large surface-to-volume ratios in nanoparticles where the surface moments are predominant. (c) 2005 Published by Elsevier B.V.
