Abstract

Giant moments are observed at low temperatures in a granular FeCl2-Fe heterostructure owing to a local metamagnetic transformation of the antiferromagnetic (AF) FeCl2 matrix due to dipolar interactions. A model of metamagnetically (MM) "dressed" single-domain Fe particles is suggested to explain the observations. These include polydispersive ac susceptibility induced by AF-MM domain configurations and weak exchange bias due to non-spin-flipped AF crystallites.
