Magnetic moments of decuplet baryons have been calculated in a relativistic independent quark model with a phenomenological potential in equally mixed scalar-vector harmonic form. Such a model has been successful in describing wide ranging hadronic phenomena in mesonic and baryonic sectors. Using the solutions of the constituent quark orbitals with the model parameters taken from its earlier applications, the magnetic moments of decuplet baryons Δ++ and Ω− have been obtained which are in good agreement with the available experimental data. However, the agreement is found to be much better when the magnetic moment ratios such as μδ++/μp and μΩ-/μΛ are considered. Model predictions for the magnetic moments of other decuplet baryons together with the charge radii have also been calculated which may be verified in future experiments.
