Magnetized Material

In dealing with electrostatics, we had seen that the electrical polarization of the medium itself influences the electrical behavior of substances. In the same way we have internal currents within a material because there are moving charges in atoms and molecules which can create their own magnetic field.

There are two types effects here, the first is due to the orbital motion of the electrons and the second is due to the intrinsic spin magnetic moment of the electrons. The second effect is purely quantum mechanical in origin and its discussion is beyond the scope of this course. Like in the electrostatic case, the magnetic moment could be intrinsic to an atom or molecule or it could be induced by an externally applied magnetic field.

We will see later that in terms of theor magnetic behavior, substances fall broadly into three classes, viz. diamagnets, paramagnets and ferromagnets. Diamagnetism arises because of electromagnetic induction effect where the atomic currents oppose any change of flux through the atoms by an external magnetic field. We will discuss this effect later in more detail. The total current inside a material consists of two parts, the first is the conduction current, which is due to bodily motion of the free charges in a conductor and the second is due to atomic currents. The latter are too tiny to be taken care of individually and we consider such effects in an average sense.

Let  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev be the magnetic moment of the i-th atom inside a matter. We define magnetization as the net magnetic moment per unit volume 

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

The quantity is very similar to the polarization in dielectric material. We will calculate the effect due to the magnetization of the material by calculating the vector potential corresponding to the microscopic currents. We had seen earlier that the magnetic vector potential due to a magnetic moment is given by the expression

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

where  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev is the position vector of the point of observation with respect to the position of the magnetic moment.

Using this we can write down the expression for the vector potential at a positionMagnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRevdue to magnetic moments I n a magnetized material having a magnetization  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev where, as before,

we have used the primed quantities to indicate the variable to be integrated

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

As we did in the electrostatic case, we can convert this into two integrals, one over the volume and the other over the surface of the material, We can rewrite the vector potential as

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

We now use the vector identity for the curl of a product of a scalar with a vector,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

using which we can write,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRevMagnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

The first term can be converted to a surface integral in a manner very similar to the way we converted volume integral of a divergence to a surface integral,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRevMagnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Thus  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev takes the role of a surface current. We now identify, as we did in the electrostatic case, a bound volume current and a bound surface current, defined by

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

The origins of these currents can be understood by realizing that there are large number of internal currents within the material which may not cancel within the volume. The surface term is understood similar to the way the polarization charge was introduced as even when internal currents cancel out, the currents at the boundary do not have neighbouring loops to cancel. Let us calculate the magnetic field due to magnetization of the material.

Let us start with the expression for the vector potential. If the gradient is taken with respect to the point of observation, we can write,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

We use the identity,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

where A and B are arbitrary vector fields not to be confused with the vector potential and the field respectively.

Using this identity, we have,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRevMagnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Since the  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev operators are with respect to the unprimed index,  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev is not differentiated with respect to it.

Using the fact that  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev we can perform the first integration and are left with,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

The last term is expressed in terms of gradient of a vector which is to be understood, as explained earlier as gradient of three components of the vector on which it acts. Using the vector identity stated above, and, using the fact that the operatorMagnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev does not act on vectors or scalars which are functions of primed indices, we can write the second term of the above equation as

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

the last line follows because the curl in the previous expression is zero. Thus we get, for the magnetic field,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Since curl of a gradient is zero, we get,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

If we add the conduction current contribution to the above, we get Ampere’s law for the combined case to be

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

The integral form of the Ampere’s law follows,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

where the magnetization current is defined in terms of the magnetization current density,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

We can rewrite Ampere’s law as

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

which now includes the contribution due to the magnetic medium. We now define, a new vector

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

which, incidentally, is also known as the magnetic field. There is a lot of confusion in literature because of this. The B field that we have been using so far, has been called the “magnetic field of induction” or the “magnetic flux density” in literature. However, whenever there is no confusion we will call each of these fields as the magnetic field and the context should make it clear which field we are referring to. When both are used in the same discussion, we will simply call them as the B field or the H field. The line integral of the H- field gives

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

The situation is very similar to the use of E and D in electrostatics. The H field tries to artificially separate the contribution due to the applied magnetic field and is thought to arise from the conduction current alone. This is artificial because there is no physical way in which one can achieve this separation and what an experiment would measure is the B field which includes both the contributions. Note that there is a dimensional difference between H and B, the former is measured in units of A/m.

Using Stoke’s theorem, we can write the curl of H as

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

This enables us to relate H to the scalar magnetic potential by

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

If  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev we can write  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev For small applied field the system has a linear response to the field, i.e.,  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev so that we can write  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev , the proportionality factor Xis known as the magnetic susceptibility of the material. As we stated earlier, there are three basic type of magnetic material. There are substances which are known as “paramagnetic” for which the magnetic susceptibility is positive while for “diamagnetic” material , it is negative. There is a third class of material known as “ferromagnets” which show hysteresis behavior. For substances which show linear response, we can write,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

where 1+Xis known as “relative permeability” .

Boundary conditions on B and H fields are obtained by using tricks similar to that used earlier. Gauss’s law  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev leads to the normal component of magnetic field of induction being continuous at an interface and the Ampere’s law for the H field,  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev leads to a discontinuity in the tangential component of the H field at a surface having a surface current,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Example : A Uniformly Magnetized Sphere

We will use the scalar potential concept to discuss this case. Recall that the scalar magnetic potential for a magnetic moment  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev is given by

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

This is very similar to the corresponding electrostatic expression for the scalar potential due to an electric dipole moment,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Thus, following the way we obtained an expression for the scalar potential for a dielectric material and separated the contribution into two parts, a volume part and a surface part, we can write,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

(This is like defining a “magnetic charge density” with a volume component  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev and a surface component  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev In reality, magnetic charges do not exist but it helps drawing parallel to the electric case.)

In this case, since the magnetization is uniform, the volume component vanishes and we are left with

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

The normal to the surface being in the radial direction, if we take the direction of magnetization along the z direction,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

we have,  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev We will expand  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev in spherical harmonics

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Where the primes quantities refer to coordinates of  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev and the unprimed quantities to coordinates of  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Note that  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev The surface integral is essentially an integration over the solid angle which picks up, because of orthogonality condition on spherical harmonics  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev term only, leaving us with

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Inside the material,  r > = R, r<= r  which gives for the magnetic potential inside,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Outside the sphere, r>= r, r<=rR and we get,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Using these, we can get expressions for the magnetic field both inside and outside. Inside, since the scalar potential only depends on z,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

which gives Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Outside the sphere, we use spherical polar coordinates and since there is no azimuthal dependence of the potential, we have,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Which is a familiar expression for the magnetic field outside.

The field inside is uniform while the field outside must form closed loops.

Solutions to Tutorial Assignments

1. Since the magnetization is uniform, there are no bound volume currents. There will however be bound surface currents, given by

 Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

 Since the current is in the (azimuthal) direction of  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev the problem is similar to that of a solenoid. The field outside the cylinder is zero but the field inside is along the axis and is given by  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

2. As the free current is given, we can use Ampere’s law to determine the H field, which is given by 

 Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Since the material is linear we can write the corresponding B field by multiplying the field inside by μ and the outside field by μ0 i.e.

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Thus the magnetization vector  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev is non zero only inside the material and is given by

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

The volume bound current density is

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

Since the magnitudes of the bound current densities are constant, the total bound current from volume is obtained by multiplying the current density with πR2 and the surface bound current is obtained by multiplying with the circumference 2πR. These two contributions being equal and opposite, the net bound current is zero.

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

By symmetry the fields at The total current enclosed within a length L of the cylinder is  Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev Thus the magnetic field outside is zero.

Since the current is in azimuthal direction, in order to calculate the magnetic field, we need to take an Amperian loop which is in the form of a rectangle of height L whose one side is at a distance r from the axis and the other parallel side is outside. Since the field outside is zero, we have,

Magnetized Material Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev

which gives
