11 In the case of inhomogeneous magnetic materials, however, the AHE implies the presence of the spin-dependent scattering mechanism. The skew scattering dominates at low temperature, while the side jump becomes im- portant at high temperature. 7 Interestingly, the observation of AHE in inhomogeneous ferromagnets, especially in ferromag- netic clusters embedded in a non-magnetic material matrix, pro- vides evidence for interaction between spin-carriers and localized magnetic clusters. However, it is difficult to distin- guish these two intrinsic and extrinsic phenomena. The Hall effect in magnetic materials is commonly described by the phenomenological equation (1) , where q H is the Hall resistivity, H the magnetic induction, and M the magnetization in the z -direction. 12 q H ¼ R o H þ R AHE M : (1) A specific feature of ferromagnetic materials is that their Hall resistivity possesses two components, one of which is due to the Lorentz force and is proportional to the magnetic induc- tion B (the normal part), while the other is proportional to the magnetization M (the anomalous part). The latter is related to the influence of the SOI on the scattering of spin-polarized carriers and is much greater than the normal component. In addition, it has been experimentally confirmed that ferromagnetic materials follow the law of approach to satura- tion (2) , where M S is the saturation magnetization, and a , b , and v are constants. 13 M ¼ M s 1 ± a H ± b H 2 ± ² þ v H : (2) By plugging M identified from Eq. (2) into Eq. (1) , we have q H ¼ R o H þ R AHE M s 1 ± a H ± b H 2 ± ² þ v H ³ ´ : (3) From Eq. (3) , it is clear that the Hall resistance is dependent on a , b , and v . We note that the first term of b / H 2 is contrib- uted of magnetocrystalline, 14 , 15 stress, 16 and shape anisot- ropy. 17 The second term of a / H is known as the magnetic hardness but it still remains theoretically controversial because this term is impossible or only effective in a certain field range because it can lead to an indefinite energy of magnetization. 18 The v H term is often referred to as the so- call paramagnetism-like term proportional to H 1/2 , whose or- igin may lie in the defects present in ferromagnetic materials. 19 21 Furthermore, Zhang et al. reported that the a / H , b / H 2 , and v H terms all originate from the magnetocrys- talline anisotropy. 18 Recently, Man’kov reported the effect of conduction electrons on the magnetization curve of a me- tallic ferromagnet with surface pinning of the magnetic moment following a power-law dependence H ± 3/4 to the law of magnetization approach to saturation. 22 In addition, the H ± 1/2 dependence in the law approach of the magnetization to saturation holds in bulk samples, where it is due to the point a) Author to whom correspondence should be addressed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
