exchange anisotropy

exchange anisotropy

[iks′chānj ‚an·ə′sä·trə·pē]
(electromagnetism)
Phenomenon observed in certain mixtures of magnetic materials under certain conditions, in which magnetization is favored in some direction (rather than merely along some axis); thought to be caused by exchange coupling across the interface between compounds when one is ferromagnetic and one is antiferromagnetic.
