(fe rī’mag n∂, tiz ∂m) Property of some spinel-structured ferrites that show both ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic properties because ionic interactions favor both parallel and antiparallel alignments of group (domain) magnetic moments. Ferrimagnetic substances include distinct ferromagnetic sublattices that couple antiferromagnetically so that the observed magnetism is the difference.
