  Curie point - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As the temperature is increased from below the Curie point, thermal fluctuations increasingly destroy this alignment, until the net magnetization becomes zero at and above the Curie point.
The destruction of magnetization at the Curie temperature is a second-order phase transition and a critical point where the magnetic susceptibility is theoretically infinite.
In analogy to ferromagnetic materials, the Curie temperature is also used in piezoelectric materials to describe the temperature above which the material loses its spontaneous polarization and piezoelectric characteristics.

 Curie Temperature of Iron
The Curie temperature of iron is 1043 K. Even sources copyrighted before the year 1984 had the Curie temperature of iron to be the same number as more current sources.
When the temperature of iron is at the Curie temperature or higher, then the iron becomes paramagnetic and when the temperature of iron is below the Curie temperature, then it is ferromagnetic.
As the temperature is increased, thermal fluctuations abruptly destroy this alignment until the net magnetization becomes zero at and above the Curie point.

CURIE, Marie (1867–1934) and Pierre (1859–1906), French physicists and Nobel laureates, who were wife and husband; together, they discovered the chemical elements radium and polonium.
Curie thus began studying uranium radiations, and, using piezoelectric techniques devised by her husband, carefully measured the radiations in pitchblende, an ore containing uranium.
Pierre Curie ended his own work on magnetism to join his wife’s research, and in 1898 the Curies announced their discovery of two new elements: polonium (named by Marie in honor of Poland) and radium.

 Pierre and Marie Curie
Pierre and Marie Curie are best known for their pioneering work in the study of radioactivity, which led to their discovery in 1898 of the elements radium and polonium.
In 1903, Marie Curie obtained her doctorate for a thesis on radioactive substances, and with her husband and Henri Becquerel she won the Nobel Prize for physics for the joint discovery of radioactivity.
The work of Marie and Pierre Curie, which by its nature dealt with changes in the atomic nucleus, led the way toward the modern understanding of the atom as an entity that can be split to release enormous energy.

 Magneto Thermodynamics, Part 3
Therefore, the temperature of the un-paired electron spin population is infinite (2.1.4), and obviously no longer in thermal equilibrium with the bulk population (heat flows from spin population into bulk population).
During this decline in temperature, the un-paired electron spin population momentarily dips below the Curie transition temperature (3.1.3), thereby causing a momentary rise in total magnetic flux as ferromagnetic spin coupling forces contribute to overall un-paired electron spin alignment.
The purpose of this step is to force the temperature of the un-paired electron spin population to fall below the Curie transition temperature (3.1.3, 3.1.5, 3.2.2), and thereby cause the magnetic susceptibility of the core to become infinite (onset of ferromagnetic behavior).

In this study the desired range of Curie temperatures was obtained by combination of melting and ball milling of nickel-copper alloy.
The use of materials with Curie temperature in the range of 41–46°C is desired to provide a safeguard against overheating of normal cells, due to the decrease of magnetic coupling in the paramagnetic regime (above Tc).
The liquid temperature of the alloy is 1365 °C [4] – a higher temperature was used in order to avoid inaccuracies due to differences between actual and set temperature.

This temperature is reached at about 20 km depth in the Earth, whereas at the outer boundary of the Core (about 2900 km depth) the temperature is about 20000C.
This is well above the Curie temperature, so although the core is largely iron, that iron is no longer ferromagnetic, and the Earth's core cannot be a permanent magnet.

 Curie Temperature of Gadolinium
The Curie temperature is the point at which certain metals loses the behavior of ferromagnetism, when metals stay magnified after being exposed to a magnetic field.
Unlike the other more common ferromagnetic metals, which have a curie temperature of well over five hundred Kelvin, Gadolinium's Curie temperature is around room temperature at 293 Kelvin.
Besides being superconductivity at extremely low temperatures and is strongly magnetic at room temperature, Gadolinium is the only metal outside the fourth period metals that shows signs of ferromagnetic properties.

The Curie temperature refers to the transition temperature above which ferromagnetic materials lose their useful magnetic properties.
Ferrite materials are actually ferrimagnetic materials [a similar but distinctly different type of magnetic material], and thus this transition temperature in ferrite cores is more correctly referred to as the Néel temperature.

 Low Temperatures Changing Magnetic Properties
The term "Curie Temperature" is the temperature above which a magnetic material looses its magnetic properties, or conversely, below which it has magnetic properties.
There are no common metals that have a curie temperature below about room temperature, and only one (Gadolinium) whose curie temperature is that low; it becomes magnetic below 293°K (20°C), that is, at room temperature and below.
Other materials (called paramagnets) have electrons that are randomly organized, say at room temperature, but that become organized if the temperature is reduced so that the atoms are not bounced around too much.

 Curie Temperature
Brief: All ferromagnets have a maximum temperature where the ferromagnetic property disappears as a result of thermal agitation.
Ferromagnetism is a phenomenon by which a material can exhibit a spontaneous magnetization, and is one of the strongest forms of magnetism.
All of these alignment effects only occur at temperatures below a certain critical temperature, called the Curie temperature (for ferromagnets and ferrimagnets) or the Néel temperature (for antiferromagnets).
