paramagnetic relaxation

[¦par·ə·mag′ned·ik ‚rē‚lak′sā·shən]
(electromagnetism)
The approach of a system, which displays paramagnetism because of electronic magnetic moments of atoms or ions, to an equilibrium or steady-state condition over a period of time, following a change in the magnetic field.
