hysteresis loop The curve formed when the intensity of magnetization acquired by a ferromagnetic material is plotted against the magnitude of a direct magnetic field applied in one direction and then in the opposite direction. This loop is used to define the coercivity, saturation magnetization, and susceptibility of such materials.
