The magnetization reversal process reveals typical ferromagnetic domain behavior--that is, domain nucleation and possibly domain wall propagation--in contrast to much weaker magnetic signals observed in the end-members, possibly due to super-paramagnetic behavior.
The constants [[epsilon].sub.0], [m.sub.0] > 0 denote the electric and magnetic permeability of free space, respectively, and the constant [sigma] [greater than or equal to] 0 stands for the conductivity of the ferromagnetic domain w.
This could be due to filamentary superconductivity or superconductivity occurring first in ferromagnetic domain wall, where magnetization is suppressed which is certainly favorable for superconductivity.
