Abstract

The magnetization of a cylindrical Ising nano-tube is investigated by the use of the effective field theory with correlations. The effects of the crystal field couplings at the surface shell to the order parameters, susceptibility, internal energy, specific heat and free energy are investigated. Some characteristic phenomena are examined in the thermal variations, depending on crystal field term. Moreover, tricritical and critical points are found on the (D/J,kT/J) plane, where D/J and kT/J are reduced crystal-field and temperature, respectively. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
