Abstract : Ferromagnetic domain walls tend to move in phase with an alternating stress or magnetic field. This movement is opposed by the presence of directionally ordered interstitial atoms. When the time associated with the relaxation process is of the order of the period of the moving walls, a phase lag between the applied field and the domain-wall movement occurs. This phase lag, coupled with normal hysteresis losses, causes the appearance of a variety of magnetic and magnetoelastic phenomena. Among these are a strong temperature dependence of the a-c magnetic permeability and a broad internal-friction peak in the temperature range of the Snoek peaks. These phoenomena can be interpreted in terms of viscoelastic theory, with a relaxation process (interstitial directional ordering) having a unique activation energy. (Author)
