Abstract

We demonstrate that the quasistatic recording of the magnetic excitation function M(H) of superparamagnetic iron oxide magnetic nanoparticle (SPION) suspensions by an atomic magnetometer allows a precision determination of the sample’s iron mass contentmFe and the particle size distribution.
