Title: Origin of the net magnetic moment in LaCoO 3

Abstract

We use polarized neutron scattering to characterize the Bragg scattering intensity below T C=89.5 K at the (1,0,0) pseudocubic nuclear Bragg point of LaCoO 3. Upon cooling in a field (FC), a net magnetic moment is apparent in Bragg scattering intensity, just as it was in previous magnetization measurements. Critical behavior associated with the net moment near T C upon cooling in small applied fields rapidly rounds with increasing field strength. We show, using a mean-field calculation, that this net moment can develop in a metastable state that forms upon FC, even when all the interactions in the system are antiferromagnetic.
