Magnets and the Curie Temperature

Curie Temperature

The term “Curie temperature (Tc)” or “Curie point” gets frequently mentioned when discussing magnets and magnetic properties.  The Curie temperature relates to the maximum temperature a material can reach before losing its magnetic properties.  On reaching a magnetic material’s Curie temperature, the spontaneous magnetisation in the material drops to zero.  At this point, the material…
