Title: Partial glass isosymmetry transition in multiferroic hexagonal ErMn O 3

Abstract

Ferroelectric transitions of a hexagonal multiferroic, ErMnO3, are studied by x-ray scattering techniques. We identify an isosymmetry transition approximately 300 K below the paraelectric to ferrielectric transition temperature. The main characteristics of the transition are dynamic in nature without apparent structural symmetry transformation, which is the first example of the kind in crystalline materials. The transition behavior is considered for hidden sluggish modes and compared with studies of the stacked triangular antiferromagnets.
