The orbital motion of electrons is the other source of magnetism in materials. You will understand the physical basis of orbital magnetism, and you’ll know how to determine the orbital magnetic moment of free atoms. It is perfectly possible to compute orbital moments in crystals by DFT as well, but this is a slightly advanced topic that we will not touch now.
Test your understanding about magnetic moments by this quiz!
