Signal generation in magnetic particle imaging and magnetic particle spectroscopy is generally described via the Langevin function of superparamagnetism. To include the magnetization dynamics, the Langevin function is augmented with a frequency-dependent term derived from the linear Debye model. Here, we extend that expression to cover the dynamics of higher harmonics, where each harmonic is multiplied with a complex-valued weighting factor, obtaining a frequency-domain model for application in the context of viscosity-/binding-dependent magnetic particle spectroscopy measurements.
