The antiferromagnet FeBr2 has been studied by Mössbauer spectroscopy in external fields both in the metamagnetic region below the multicritical temperature TMCP and in the second-order transition region above. The local magnetization shows that the metamagnetic transition occurs by spin flips, as in simple models. However, in the second-order transition region, the local magnetization of the sublattice oriented antiparallel to the external field varies continuously but remains parallel to the c axis. This can only be understood if the external magnetic field induces strong transversal spin precession of the moments on the antiparallel sublattice. This shows that the ...


Magnetic-Field-Induced Griffiths Phase Versus Random-Field Criticality And Domain Wall Susceptibility Of Fe0.47zn0.53f2, Christian Binek, S. Kuttler, Wolfgang Kleemann Sep 1995

Magnetic-Field-Induced Griffiths Phase Versus Random-Field Criticality And Domain Wall Susceptibility Of Fe0.47zn0.53f2, Christian Binek, S. Kuttler, Wolfgang Kleemann

The well-known peak of the parallel ac susceptibility arising below TN in Fe0.47Zn0.53F2 splits into a narrow critical peak at Tc (H) and a broad field-induced Griffiths phase shoulder peaking at Tp>Tc(H) in magnetic fields H≳1.6 MA /m. Random-field (RF) criticality with α̃≈0 and subsequent rounding due to RF trapping of thermal fluctuations are observed upon zero-field cooling as T→Tc-(H). The frozen domain state obtained after rapid field cooling reveals excess susceptibility Δχw′∝H2.6, owing to rough walls with thermally ...

Weak quasistatic singularities are evidenced within the Griffiths regime of temperatures Tc(x)≤T≤Tc(x=0) in the diluted antiferromagnet Fe1-xZnxF2, x=0.53, and in the diluted ferromagnet K2Cu1-xZnxF4, x=0.2, by measurements of the magnetic susceptibility, χ’ vs T, in zero external field. Significant deviations from classical (γ=1, for Fe0.47Zn0.53F2) and nonclassical (γ≳1, for K2Cu0.8Zn0.2F4) Curie-Weiss-type behavior, χ’∝[T-Tc(x)] -Y, are found ...
