Title: P11530-E005-PF: Magnetization measurements on single crystals β-TeVO 4

Abstract

β-TeVO 4 crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2 1/c. The spin structure is an arrangement of V zigzag double chains that run parallel to the c-axis and are formed by slightly distorted VO 5 pyramids. Microscopic analysis identifies frustrated J1-J2 spin chains with sizable coupling in the bc plane and no frustrations. Magnetic susceptibility vs temperature experiments reveal a Curie-Weiss behavior with AFM correlations (θ ≈ -11 K) and a pronounced maximum at 14 K. A small anisotropy is observed between H ll b and H ll a,c, with b being the magnetic easy axis. Three anomalies are observed at 2.26 K, 3.28 K and 4.65 K in the magnetic susceptibility, however, the magnetic order corresponding to these transitions is currently unknown.
