A Comparison Between Square-Loop Metals and Ferrites for High-Speed Pulsed Operation, 1954 February 04

 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 16
Scope and Contents MIT DIC 6889. Project Whirlwind Memo M-2602. Metals and ferrites with rectangular hysteresis loops are used in magnetic amplifiers, switching networks, and data-storage systems. In these applications, the large-signal pulse response is most important. To reduce the effect of eddy currents, metals have been rolled to ultra-thin gage and high-resistivity ferrites have been used. By these techniques, eddy currents have been reduced to the point where relaxation effects limit the response time in...

A sequential-access three-microsecond core memory, 1956 March 08

 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 16
Scope and Contents Division 6 Memo M-4218. A proposed core memory is described that has sequential access to 256 registers (word storage locations), can read out a new word every 3 microsecond and has word length of 58 bits. A read-rewrite cycle for a given storage location requires 6 microseconds; the rewrite (or write), is accomplished during the 3 microsecond period that the next storage location is being read. Direct storage location selection provides a 3-to-1 selection ratio. Small, low-coercive-force cores...

A Theory of Perovskite-Type Manganites (La,M(II))MnO₃, 1954 November 30

 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 16
Scope and Contents MIT DIC 6889. Project Whirlwind Memo 6M-3185. Semicovalence and its effects on indirect magnetic-exchange interaction are reviewed and applied to the manganites. These considerations lead to qualitative predictions which are in complete accord with the following experimentally observed facts, where x is taken as the percentage of manganese ions which are Mn[superscript 4+]: (1) At x = 0, LaMnO₃ is an orthorhombic perovskite-type lattice with a₁ = a₃ > a₂. The ratio a₂/a₃ increases to 1 at x...

An Analytical Review of Neel's Molecular Field Theory of Ferri- and Antiferromagnetism, 1953 September 16

 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 16
Scope and Contents MIT DIC 6889. Project Whirlwind Memo M-2412. Neel's molecular field model of ferrimagnetism is reviewed and it is shown how the magnetization below the Curie point can be calculated as a function of temperature using susceptibility data obtained above the Curie temperature. While neither Neel's fundamental concepts nor his conclusions have been altered, his methods have been modified in order to obtain a clearer understanding of his results.

B-H Loop Squareness in the Magnesium-Manganese Ferrites, 1953 October 22

 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 16
Scope and Contents MIT DIC 6889. Project Whirlwind Memo M-2473. A mechanism is proposed whereby a tetragonal 2MOMnO₂ phase is precipitated at {101} surfaces in manganese-rich spinel systems. The critical Mn[superscript +4] content for precipitation is estimated from studies of lattice parameters in the Fe₃O₄-Mn₃O₄-ZnMn₂O₄-ZnFe₂O₄ system. A prediction is then made as to which compositions in the MgO-Fe₃O₄-Mn₃O₄ system will give favorable B-H loops. A large region is found to depend critically upon the firing...
