Abstract: This paper concerns the investigation of the critical (HC) and the saturation (HS) magnetic fields behavior of the studied system as a function of different physical parameters. The Monte Carlo method is used to study the magnetic properties of the ferrimagnetic behavior of a double fullerene X60 core/shell-like nanostructure. Based on the Ising model, we focus our study on a system formed by a double sphere core/shell. The two spheres contain the spins s = ± 1/2 in the core surrounded by the spin S = ± 1, 0 in the shell. Various types of magnetization curves have been established, depending on the competition among the exchange couplings, the crystal fields, and the temperature. The study reveals that the saturation magnetic field (Hs) is significantly influenced by variations in all exchange coupling parameters, whereas the critical magnetic field (Hc) is only mildly affected by these parameter variations. Moreover, the crystal field and temperature both influence the critical and saturation magnetic fields.

Keywords: Double fullerene core/shell-like structure, Magnetization plateaus, Monte Carlo simulations, Critical and saturation fields, External magnetic field.
