Resumen:
This is a study on the magnetism of a Fe2O3@MCM-41composite made up of iron(III) oxide nanocrystals of average length sizeof 4 nm embedded in the channels of a MCM-41 mesoporous matrix.Through Mössbauer spectroscopy, X-ray absorption experiments andstatic and dynamic magnetic measurements, we identify the guest ironoxide entities as composed by exchange-coupled hematite (weakferromagnetic WF) and maghemite (ferrimagnetic FiM) arranged in astring of beads configuration. The WF/FiM nanocrystals behave asindependent particle moments that block as a whole below TB = 17 K.The log-normal energy barrier distribution function determined fromrelaxation measurements shows a maximum at an energy E= 200 K. Weexplore to what extent the contact between domains of the twocoexisting oxides controls the magnetism of this biphasic nanosystem.
