Light Diffraction By Field-Induced Non-Periodic Magnetic Domain Structures In Fecl2, Christian Binek

Christian Binek Publications

The magnetic-field-induced mixed phase of the meta magnet FeCl2 gives rise to reduced transmittivity of circularly polarized light. Within the framework of the diffraction theory of thin random magnetic phase gratings and the assumption of field-dependent refractive indices of the antiferromagnetic domains the field dependence of the transmission is perfectly modeled.
