Coupled Magnetic and Ferroelectric Domains in Multiferroic Ni3V2O8
(American Physical Society, 2009-08-21)
Electric control of multi-ferroic domains is demonstrated through polarized magnetic neutron diffraction. Cooling to the cycloidal multi-ferroic phase of Ni3V2O8 in an electric field E causes the incommensurate Bragg ...
Bound spinons in an antiferromagnetic S=1/2 chain with a staggered field
(American Physical Society, 2004-07-02)
Inelastic neutron scattering was used to measure the magnetic field dependence of spin excitations in the antiferromagnetic S=1/2 chain CuCl2·2(dimethylsulfoxide) in the presence of uniform and staggered fields. Dispersive ...
Magnetic inversion symmetry breaking and ferroelectricity in TbMnO3
(American Physical Society, 2005-08-19)
TbMnO3 is an orthorhombic insulator where incommensurate spin order for temperature TN<41 K is accompanied by ferroelectric order for T<28 K. To understand this, we establish the magnetic structure above and below the ...
Field dependence of magnetic ordering in Kagome-staircase compound Ni3V2O8
(American Physical Society, 2006-07-01)
We present powder and single-crystal neutron diffraction and bulk measurements of the Kagome-staircase compound Ni3V2O8 (NVO) in fields up to 8.5 T applied along the c direction. (The Kagome plane is the a-c plane.) This ...
Neutron scattering from a coordination polymer quantum paramagnet
(American Physical Society, 2006-09-01)
Inelastic neutron scattering measurements are reported for a powder sample of the spin-1/2 quantum paramagnet Cu(quinoxaline)Br2. Magnetic neutron scattering is identified above an energy gap of 1.9 meV. Analysis of the ...
