Q. With reference to Magnons, consider the following statements:
1.These are quasiparticles.
2.Their movement through the material does not generate any heat.
Which of the statements given above is/are correct?
Both statements are correct.
- Magnons are particle avatars of spin waves which can ripple through a lattice of tiny ferromagnetic particles of nano dimensions.
- Since magnons are quasiparticles, their movement through the material does not generate any heat.
