The PbFe0.5Nb0.5O3 (PFN), a well-known A(B'1/2B"1/2)O3 type multiferroic was successfully synthesized in single phase by a single step solid state reaction method. Read More

We have studied the field and temperature dependence of the magnetization of single crystals of Sr3NiIrO6. These measurements evidence the presence of an easy axis of anisotropy and two anomalies in the magnetic susceptibility. Neutron powder diffraction realized on a polycrystalline sample reveals the emergence of magnetic reflections below 75 K with magnetic propagation vector k ~ (0, 0, 1), undetected in previous neutron studies [T.

Dielectric response has been studied for a new manganocuprate, Gd3Ba2Mn2Cu2O12 (Gd3222) as a function of temperature (100 - 300 K) and frequency (75 kHz to 1 MHz). The dielectric constant (e) exhibits a two step increase (two peaks) in e(T) with increasing temperature from 100 to 300 K. The first peak is seen around 150 K and the second one around 210 K (both for 75 kHz). Read More

The influence of negative chemical pressure induced by gradual replacement of Ca by Sr as well as of external pressure (up to 10 kbar) on the magnetism of Ca3CoRhO6 has been investigated by magnetization studies. It is found that the solid solution, Ca(3-x)Sr(x)CoRhO6, exists at least till about x= 1.0 without any change in the crystal structure. Read More

The manganocuprate compound Gd3Ba2Mn2Cu2O12 (Gd-3222) has been synthesized by conventional solid state reaction method and its magnetic behavior has been studied by dc and ac magnetization (M) and heat capacity (C) measurements as a function of temperature (T). This compound crystallizes in a tetragonal structure (space group I4/mmm). We find that this compound exhibits three magnetic transitions, around 2. Read More

The competition between magnetic ordering and the Kondo effect in Ce2RhSi3, ordering antiferromagnetically at 7 K, is investigated by the measurements of magnetization, heat capacity and electrical resistivity on the solid solutions, Ce(2-x)La(x)RhSi3, Ce(2-y)Y(y)RhSi3, and Ce2RhSi(3-z)Ge(z), as well as by high pressure studies on this compound. The trends in the Kondo and Neel temperature variations among these alloys are compared to infer the roles of unit-cell volume and electronic structure changes. On the basis of the results, we infer that this compound lies at the peak of Doniach-magnetic-phase-diagram. Read More

The results of ac and dc magnetic susceptibility isothermal magnetization and heat-capacity measurements as a function of temperature (T) are reported for Sr3NiRhO6 and Sr3NiPtO6 containing magnetic chains arranged in a triangular fashion in the basal plane and crystallizing in K4CdCl6-derived rhombohedral structure. The results establish that both the compounds are magnetically frustrated, however in different ways. In the case of the Rh compound, the susceptibility data reveal that there are two magnetic transitions, one in the range 10 -15 K and the other appearing as a smooth crossover near 45 K, with a large frequency dependence of ac susceptibility in the range 10 to 40 K; in addition, the features in C(T) are smeared out at these temperatures.

We report the results of ac and dc magnetic susceptibility (chi), heat-capacity (C), isothermal magnetization and isothermal remanent magnetization measurements on the compound, Sr3CuRhO6, crystallizing in a K4CdCl6-derived monoclinic structure. The magnetization data reveal distinct magnetic anomalies near 6 and 12 K with decreasing temperature (T). While the transition below (To=) 6K appears to be of a spin-glass-type as inferred from all the data, the one at 12 K is not typical of bulk ferromagnetism in contrast to an earlier proposal.

Two modifications of CeCuSn were prepared from the elements: the high-temperature (beta) modification crystallizes directly from the quenched sample, while the low-temperature (alpha) modification forms after annealing at 700 deg C for one month. Both modifications were investigated by X-ray powder and single crystal diffraction. We find for alpha-CeCuSn a structure of ZrBeSi type, space group P63/mmc, a = 458. Read More
