Abstract: Nowadays, extensive attentions have been focussed on the study of induction heating implanted magnetic nanoparticle under AC magnetic field for cancer hyperthermia treatment. Colloidal cluster composed of superparamagnetic nanoparticle has shown great potential for efficient hyperthermia heating. However, the relationship between cluster properties and heating efficiency is not clear. In this work, we investigate the influence of morphology anisotropy of cluster of superparamagnetic nanoparticle on magnetic hysteresis by Monte Carlo simulation. Five kinds of clusters with different shapes and structure are studied. We find that the morphology anisotropy of cluster changes the magnetic loss by affecting the tendency of cluster to remain magnetically aligned with the field orientation. A large aspect ratio of the length of cluster along the field orientation to the width perpendicular to the orientation can increase the amount of energy converted per cycle significantly. Lacking morphology anisotropy will make the magnetic hysteresis of cluster numb to the manipulation of cluster properties.
