The Barnett effect refers to the magnetization induced by rotation of a demagnetized ferromagnet. We describe the location and stability of stationary states in rotating nanostructures using the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation. The conditions for an experimental observation of the Barnett effect in different materials and sample geometries are discussed.
