  • We use a magnetic field to tune a highly anisotropic single crystal of oxygen-deficient YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7{minus}{delta}} with a transition temperature of 2 K through the superconductor-insulator transition. The sheet resistance scales with temperature, 0.05{le}{ital T}{le}1.0 K, and field, 0{le}{ital H}{le}94 kOe, in a manner predicted by a theory for quantum phase transitions in disordered two-dimensional superconductors.
  • The structure and magnetic properties of orthorhombic Dy 2TiO 5 have been investigated using x-ray diffraction, neutron diffraction, and alternating current (ac)/direct current (dc) magnetic susceptibility measurements. In this paper, we report a continuous structural distortion below 100 K characterized by negative thermal expansion in the [0 1 0] direction. Neutron diffraction and magnetic susceptibility measurements revealed that two-dimensional (2D) magnetic ordering begins at 3.1 K, which is followed by a three-dimensional magnetic transition at 1.7 K. The magnetic structure has been solved through a representational analysis approach and can be indexed with the propagation vector k = [0 1/2more » 0]. The spin structure corresponds to a coplanar model of interwoven 2D “sheets” extending in the [0 1 0] direction. The local crystal field is different for each Dy 3+ ion (Dy1 and Dy2), one of which possesses strong uniaxial symmetry indicative of Ising-like magnetic ordering. In conclusion, consequently, two succeeding transitions under magnetic field are observed in the ac susceptibility, which are associated with flipping each Dy 3+ spin independently.« less
  • Neutron scattering measurements have been performed on a single-crystal sample of CsCo[sub 0.83]Mg[sub 0.17]Br[sub 3], a quasi-one-dimensional, Ising-like antiferromagnet. Residual three- dimensional interactions between the dilute magnetic chains precipitate a phase transition to long-range order at [ital T][sub [ital N]][similar to]9.0 K, and short-range correlations persist as high as 40 K. Relatively high-energy inelastic scattering from both bulk'' spin-wave modes and end'' modes is observed from the finite chains. The low-energy inelastic spectrum is dominated by soliton scattering due to antiphase domain walls propagating along the finite chains.
