Abstract:

Metamagnetic materials are ordered magnetic materials which in low field have zero moment, corresponding to antiferromagnetic spin alignment, but as the field is increased they undergo a more or less abrupt field induced phase transition to a state with a relatively large moment. The main body of the text consists of an extensive review of mose of the published work in this field. It includes discussion of some 75 different materials described in almost 300 papers and it reproduces over 200 figures of experimental results and extensive tables of important parameters. Author
