Sereni, J. G., J. Roberts, F. Gastaldo, and M. Giovannini. "Suppression of the Shastry-Sutherland phase driven by electronic concentration reduction in magnetically frustrated Ce2.15Pd1.95(Sn1-yIny)0.9 alloys." Physical Review B 100, no. 5 (2019): 054421.
Abstract: Exploiting the possibility to switch from antiferromagnetic (AFM) and ferromagnetic (FM) ground states (GSs) in out-stoichiometric branches of
Ce2Pd2In alloys, the stability of Shastry-Sutherland (ShSu) phase of
Ce2Pd2Sn as a function of Sn/In electron doping was studied. Magnetic and specific-heat measurements show that the Ce-rich compositions stabilize the FM-GS throughout the Sn/In-FM substitution, allowing to extend the formation of the ShSu phase up to its collapse in a tricritical point around ycr=0.5. On the other hand, this behavior is quite different from that reported in a recent investigation on the AFM branch where atomic disorder at intermediate Sn/In-AFM concentrations inhibits the formation of the ShSu phase.
