A contrasting scenario is to assume that the MF is sustained by ferromagnetism in nuclear matter, produced by quantum alignment of magnetic moment of neutrons.

The ferrofluids do not display ferromagnetism because they do not retain magnetism in the absence of an externally applied field.
Interesting properties of metal-coated microspheres include high thermal conductivity, high electrical conductivity, mechanical strength, electromagnetic absorption, and ferromagnetism.
For example, the magnetic interaction of the electrons in the shell of iron atoms (below iron's characteristic Curie temperature of about 770[degrees]C) forces a spontaneous alignment in one direction of the spins of all the electrons, creating through this mutual enslavement process a phenomenon familiar to us as ferromagnetism.
These spins are disordered at normal temperatures, a state known as paramagnetism; however, the spins begin to align in opposite directions as the temperature drops, creating a state called anti ferromagnetism.
Two separate chapters are devoted to nanostructures of carbon and to ferromagnetism.
The mutual inductances, not relying on ferromagnetism, are relatively unaffected by changes in temperature or by aging.
a magnetic signal that is defined through the magnetic field (or the magnetic flux density as appropriate); while this signal is always directly related to an equivalent electrical signal, the two are conveniently separated since the "molecular currents" that give rise to ferromagnetism are not conveniently recognized separately
