Title: Magnetic properties of Sr 3 NiIrO 6 and Sr 3 CoIrO 6 : Magnetic hysteresis with coercive fields of up to 55 T

Abstract

Here, we report extraordinarily large magnetic hysteresis loops in the iridates Sr 3NiIrO 5 and Sr 3CoIrO 6. We find coercive magnetic fields of up to 55 T with switched magnetic moments ≈1μ B per formula unit in Sr 3NiIrO 6 and coercive fields of up to 52 T with switched moments ≈3μ B per formula unit in Sr 3CoIrO 6. We propose that the magnetic hysteresis involves the field-induced evolution of quasi-one-dimensional chains in a frustrated triangular configuration. In conclusion, the striking magnetic behavior is likely to be linked to the unusual spin-orbit-entangled local state of the Ir 4+ ion and its potential for anisotropic exchange interactions.
