Magnetism: Effects and Phenomenology  

Effects In General > s.a. magnetism [in matter]; nuclear physics [fusion]; superconductivity.
* Barnett effect: The magnetization of a rotating body, discovered in 1915 by S J Barnett; > s.a. gravitomagnetism.
* Larmor frequency: The precession frequency of a magnetic dipole in a uniform magnetic field; Example: For a particle with classical gyromagnetic ratio Γ = q/2mc, its value is ωL = –qB/2mc.
* Maximum value: According to a QED calculation of the effect of a magnetic field on positronium, the maximum magnetic field is 1042 G, since at a higher value "the vacuum would explode by producing collapsed positronia"; Another calculation disputes the existence of the effect.
* Magnetodielectric materials: Materials whose dielectric constant can be modulated by an applied magnetic field.
* Magnetic cooling: A.k.a. magnetocaloric effect, the cooling caused by heat absorption by previously aligned magnetic nuclei when the external magnetic field is removed.
