Abstract

The non-equilibrium dynamics of a single cubic core-shell ferrimagnetic nanoparticle system under a time dependent oscillating magnetic field is elucidated by making use of a classical Monte Carlo simulation technique with a standard Metropolis algorithm. Many interesting and unusual thermal and magnetic behaviors are observed, for instance, the locations of dynamic phase transition points change significantly depending upon amplitude and period of the external magnetic field as well as other Hamiltonian parameters in related planes. Much effort has also been devoted to the influences of the varying shell thickness on the thermal and magnetic properties of the particle, and outstanding physical findings are reported in order to better understand the dynamic process of the studied nanoparticle system.
