Title Gradual pressure-induced enhancement of magnon excitations in CeCoSi Type Journal Article
Year 2020 Publication Physical Review B Abbreviated Journal Phys. Rev. B
Volume 101 Issue Pages (down) 214426
Keywords
Abstract CeCoSi is an intermetallic antiferromagnet with a very unusual temperature-pressure phase diagram: at ambient pressure it orders below

TN=8.8K, while application of hydrostatic pressure induces a new magnetically ordered phase with exceptionally high transition temperature of ∼40K

at 1.5 GPa. We studied the magnetic properties and the pressure-induced magnetic phase of CeCoSi by means of elastic and inelastic neutron scattering (INS) and heat capacity measurements. At ambient pressure CeCoSi orders into a simple commensurate AFM structure with a reduced ordered moment of only

mCe=0.37(6)μB.Specific heat and low-energy INS indicate a significant gap in the low-energy magnon excitation spectrum in the antiferromagnetic phase, with the CEF excitations located above 10 meV. Hydrostatic pressure gradually shifts the energy of the magnon band towards higher energies and the temperature dependence of the magnons measured at 1.5 GPa is consistent with the phase diagram. Moreover, the CEF excitations are also drastically modified under pressure.

Title Intrinsic pinning by naturally occurring correlated defects in FeSe 1− x Te x superconductors Type Journal Article
Year 2017 Publication Superconductor Science and Technology Abbreviated Journal Supercond. Sci. Technol.
Volume 30 Issue 8 Pages (down) 085010
Keywords
Abstract We study the angular dependence of dissipation in the superconducting state of FeSe and Fe(Se 1− x Te x ) through electrical transport measurements, using crystalline intergrown materials. We reveal the key role of the inclusions of the non superconducting magnetic phase Fe 1− y (Se 1− x Te x ), growing into the Fe(Se 1− x Te x ) pure β -phase, in the development of a correlated defect structure. The matching of both atomic structures defines the growth habit of the crystalline material as well as the correlated planar defects orientation.

Title Synthesis and study of the chiral magnetic system EuIr2P2 Type Journal Article
Year 2021 Publication Physical Review B Abbreviated Journal Phys. Rev. B
Volume 104 Issue Pages (down) 054416
Keywords Frustrated magnetism; Antiferromagnets; Specific heat; X-ray diffraction
Abstract Chiral materials, where no improper symmetry operations such as inversion are resent, are systems prone to the appearance of a skyrmion lattice. Recently it has been shown theoretically that not only ferromagnets (FMs) but also antiferromagnets (AFMs) can host such kind of phases. In this work we study a new candidate for AFM skyrmions, EuIr2P2, by means of magnetization and specific heat measurements on poly and single crystals. X-ray diffraction confirms a trigonal chiral crystal structure, where europium ions form helices along the c direction. In spite of predominantly FM interactions, Eu2+ ions order antiferromagnetically at

TN1=5 K in what seems to be an incommensurate amplitude-modulated magnetic state where the moments are oriented mainly along the c direction. A second magnetic transition takes place at TN2=2.9 K, involving the ordering of an in-plane component of the Eu moment likely resulting in an equal-moment structure. Specific heat data show a tail above TN1. Accordingly the magnetic entropy at

TN1 is strongly reduced in comparison to the expected Rln8 value. This evidences a significant amount of frustration. A simple analysis based on a Heisenberg model indicates that the observed properties imply the presence of several relevant interactions, with competing FM and AFM ones resulting in frustration. Thus

EuIr2P2 is a new interesting magnetic system, where chirality and frustration might result in unconventional magnetic textures.

Title Change in the Magnetic Domain Alignment Process at the Onset of a Frustrated Magnetic State in Ferrimagnetic La2Ni(Ni1/3Sb2/3)O6 Double Perovskite Type Journal Article
Year 2013 Publication IEEE Transactions on Magnetics Abbreviated Journal IEEE Trans. Magn.
Volume 49 Issue 8 Pages (down) 4656-4659
Keywords coercive force; exchange interactions (electron); ferrimagnetic materials; frustration; magnetic domain walls; magnetic hysteresis; magnetic transitions; LaNi(Ni0.33Sb0.67)O6; applied magnetic field; coercive field; domain wall pinning; ferrimagnetic double perovskite; ferrimagnetic order transition; frustrated magnetic state; hysteresis data; low temperature regime; magnetic domain alignment process; magnetic exchange interactions; magnetization hysteresis loops; temperature dependence; Magnetic domain walls; Magnetic domains; Magnetic hysteresis; Magnetization; Nickel; Temperature distribution; Temperature measurement; Ferrimagnetic materials; magnetic analysis; magnetic domain walls; magnetic hysteresis
Abstract We have performed a combined study of magnetization hysteresis loops and time dependence of the magnetization in a broad temperature range for the ferrimagnetic La2Ni(Ni1/3Sb2/3)O6 double perovskite. This material has a ferrimagnetic order transition at ~100 K and at lower temperatures (~20 K) shows the signature of a frustrated state due to the presence of two competing magnetic exchange interactions. The temperature dependence of the coercive field shows an important upturn below the point where the frustrated state sets in. The use of hysteresis data, magnetization versus applied magnetic field, together with the magnetization versus time data provides a unique opportunity to distinguish between different scenarios for the low temperature regime. From our analysis, a strong domain wall pinning results in the best scenario for the low temperature regime. For temperatures larger than 20 K, the adequate scenario seems to correspond to a weak domain wall pinning.

Title Magnetic Properties of the Double Perovskites LaPbMSbO6 (M = Mn, Co, and Ni) Type Journal Article
Year 2013 Publication IEEE Transactions on Magnetics Abbreviated Journal IEEE Trans. Magn.

Abstract New double perovskites LaPbMSbO6, where M2+ = Mn2+, Co2+, and Ni2+, were synthesized as polycrystals by an aqueous synthetic route at temperatures below 1000 °C. All samples are monoclinic, space group P21/n, as it is observed from Rietveld analysis of X-ray powder diffraction patterns. The distribution of M2+ and Sb5+ among the two octahedral sites have 3% of disorder for M2+ = Ni2+, whereas for M2+ = Mn2+ and Co2+ less disorder is found. The three samples have an antiferromagnetic transition, due to the antiferromagnetic coupling between M2 + through super-superexchange paths M2+-O2--Sb5+-O2--M2+. Transition temperatures are low: 8, 10 and 17 K for Mn2+, Co2+, and Ni2 + respectively, as a consequence of the relatively long distances between the magnetic ions M2+. Besides, for LaPbMnSbO6 a small transition at 45 K was found, with ferrimagnetic characteristics, possibly as a consequence of a small disorder between Mn2+ and Sb5+. This disorder would give additional and shorter interaction paths: superexchange Mn2+-O2--Mn2+.

Title Synthesis, magnetic properties and Mössbauer spectroscopy for the pyrochlore family Bi2BB′O7 with B=Cr and Fe and B′=Nb, Ta and Sb Type Journal Article
Year 2012 Publication Physica B: Condensed Matter Abbreviated Journal Frontiers of Condensed Matter V (FCM 2010)
Volume 407 Issue 16 Pages (down) 3078-3080
Keywords Pyrochlores; Crystal structure; Magnetism; Mösbauer spectroscopy; Displacive disorder
Abstract The samples Bi2BB′O7, with B=Cr and Fe and B′=Nb, Ta and Sb were prepared by solid state method. The crystallographic structure was investigated on the basis of X-ray powder diffraction data. Rietveld refinements show that the crystal structure is cubic, space group Fd-3m. The Bi3+ cation on the eight-coordinate pyrochlore A-site shows displacive disorder, as a consequence of its lone pair electron configuration. There is also a considerable A-site disorder shown by Rietveld Analysis and confirmed in the case of the iron containing samples with Mössbauer spectroscopy. The magnetic measurements show paramagnetic behavior at all temperatures for the Cr oxides. The Fe pyrochlores show antiferromagnetic order around 10 K.

Title Synthesis, structure and magnetic properties of La3Co2SbO9: A double perovskite with competing antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic interactions Type Journal Article
Year 2012 Publication Journal of Solid State Chemistry Abbreviated Journal J. Solid State Chem.
Volume 194 Issue Pages (down) 385-391
Keywords La3Co2SbO9; Double perovskite; Powder neutron diffraction; Rietveld refinement; Ferromagnetic; Magnetic frustration
Abstract The synthesis, structural characterization, and magnetic properties of La3Co2SbO9 double perovskite are reported. The crystal structure has been refined by X-ray and neutron powder diffraction data in the monoclinic space group P21/n. Co2+ and Sb5+ have the maximum order allowed for the La3Co2SbO9 stoichiometry. Rietveld refinements of powder neutron diffraction data show that at room temperature the cell parameters are a=5.6274(2) Å, b=5.6842(2) Å, c=7.9748(2) Å and β=89.999(3)°. Magnetization measurements indicate the presence of ferromagnetic correlations with TC=55 K attributed to the exchange interactions for non-linear Co2+–O–Sb5+–O–Co2+ paths. The effective magnetic moment obtained experimentally is μexp=4.38 μB (per mol Co2+), between the theoretical one for spin only (3.87 μB) and spin-orbit value (6.63 μB), indicating partially unquenched contribution. The low magnetization value at high magnetic field and low temperature (1 μB/f.u., 5 T and 5 K) and the difference between ZFC and FC magnetization curves (at 5 kOe) indicate that the ferromagnetism do not reach a long range order and that the material has an important magnetic frustration.

Title Lead nitroprusside: A new precursor for the synthesis of the multiferroic Pb2Fe2O5, an anion-deficient perovskite Type Journal Article
Year 2013 Publication Materials Chemistry and Physics Abbreviated Journal Mater. Chem. Phys.
Volume 141 Issue 1 Pages (down) 355-361
Keywords Inorganic compounds; Magnetic materials; Powder diffraction; Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA); Magnetic properties
Abstract In order to investigate the formation of multiferroic oxide Pb2Fe2O5, the thermal decomposition of Pb[Fe(CN)5NO] has been studied. The complex precursor and the thermal decomposition products were characterized by IR and Raman spectroscopy, thermal analysis, powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), scanning electron microscopy and magnetic measurements. The crystal structure of Pb[Fe(CN)5NO] was refined by Rietveld analysis. It crystallizes in the orthorhombic system, space group Pnma. The thermal decomposition in air produces highly pure Pb2Fe2O5 as final product. This oxide is an anion deficient perovskite with an incommensurate superstructure. The magnetic measurements confirm that Pb2Fe2O5 shows a weak ferromagnetic signal probably due to disorder in the perfect antiferromagnetic structure or spin canting. The estimated ordering temperature from the fit of a phenomenological model was 520 K. The SEM images reveal that the thermal decomposition of Pb[Fe(CN)5NO] produces Pb2Fe2O5 with small particle size.

Title Tailoring the ground state of the ferrimagnet La2Ni(Ni1/3Sb2/3)O6 Type Journal Article
Year 2013 Publication Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials Abbreviated Journal J. Magn. Magn. Mater.
Volume 346 Issue Pages (down) 196-202
Keywords Ferrimagnetic; Double perovskite; Magnetic frustration; Superexchange and super-superexchange interaction; Magnetic oxide
Abstract We report on the magnetic and structural properties of La2Ni(Ni1/3Sb2/3)O6 in polycrystal, single crystal and thin film samples. We found that this material is a ferrimagnet ( T c ≈ 100 K ) which possesses a very distinctive and uncommon feature in its virgin curve of the hysteresis loops. We observe that bellow 20 K it lies outside the hysteresis cycle, and this feature was found to be an indication of a microscopically irreversible process possibly involving the interplay of competing antiferromagnetic interactions that hinder the initial movement of domain walls. This initial magnetic state is overcome by applying a temperature dependent characteristic field. Above this field, an isothermal magnetic demagnetization of the samples yield a ground state different from the initial thermally demagnetized one.

Title Characterization of the Nb-B Superlattice System Type Journal Article
Year 2016 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its Applications Abbreviated Journal
Volume 531 Issue Pages (down) 93-97
Keywords Superlattice; Superconductivity; Transition Edge Sensors
Abstract Abstract

We study the growth, stacking and superconducting properties of Nb and B thin films and superlattices. The interest in these resides in their possible use in transition edge neutron sensors. The samples were grown by magnetron sputtering over Si (100) substrates. The X-ray diffraction patterns for all Nb containing samples show a Nb (110) preferential orientation. From the low-angle X-ray reflectivity we obtain information on the superlattice structure. The superconducting transition temperatures of the superlattices, obtained from the temperature dependence of the magnetization, are higher than those of single Nb films of similar thickness. The temperature dependence of the perpendicular and parallel upper critical fields indicate that the superlattices behave as an array of decoupled superconducting Nb layers.
