Quantum criticality in an organic magnet
(American Physical Society, 2006-06-30)
Exchange interactions between S=½ sites in piperazinium hexachlorodicuprate produce a frustrated bilayer magnet with a singlet ground state. We have determined the field-temperature phase diagram by high field magnetization ...
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 ...
Inhomogeneous level splitting in Pr2-xBixRu2O7
(American Physical Society, 2005-05-06)
We report that Bi doping drives Pr2-xBixRu2O7 from an antiferromagnetic insulator (x=0) to a metallic paramagnet (x≈1) with a broad low T maximum in C/T. Neutron scattering reveals local low energy spin excitations (ℎω≈1 ...
Magnetic properties of epitaxial Mn-doped ZnO thin films
(American Institute of Physics, 2003-05-15)
Epitaxial ZnO thin films doped with 7% Mn have been made by reactive rf magnetron sputtering onto (112_0) sapphire substrates at 400°C. X-ray diffraction measurements reveal that the Zn0.93Mn0.07O film has a (0001) wurtzite ...
Direct transition from a disordered to a multiferroic phase on a triangular lattice
(American Physical Society, 2007-06-29)
We report the first direct transition from a paramagnetic and paraelectric phase to an incommensurate multiferroic in the triangular lattice antiferromagnet RbFe(MoO4)2. Ferroelectricity is observed only when the magnetic ...
