What is Curie Temperature?

The temperature at which certain materials lose their permanent magnetic properties is called Curie temperature. It is also called Curie point.

  • Curie temperature is named after French physicist Pierre Curie to show that magnetism was lost at a critical temperature in 1895.
  • At curie temperature, there is a transition from ferromagnetic to a paramagnetic substance.
  • Curie temperature is the temperature above which the magnetic materials lose their ferromagnetic properties.
  • At lower temperatures, the magnetic dipoles are aligned. Above the curie temperature, random thermal motions cause misalignment of the dipoles.
