Title: Ferromagnetic-phase transition in the spinel-type CuCr{sub 2}Te{sub 4}

Abstract

Ferromagnetic-phase transition in spinel-type CuCr{sub 2}Te{sub 4} has been clearly observed. CuCr{sub 2}Te{sub 4} is a telluride-spinel with the lattice constant a=11.134A, which has been synthesized successfully. The heat capacity exhibits a sharp peak due to the ferromagnetic-phase transition with the Curie temperature T{sub C}=326K. This value of T{sub C} corresponds exactly to that of the negative peak of dM/dT in low field of 1.0Oe. The magnetic susceptibility shows the Curie-Weiss behavior between 380 and 650K with the effective magnetic moment {mu}{sub eff}=4.14{mu}{sub B}/Cr-ion and the Weiss constant {theta}=+357K. The low temperature magnetization indicates the spin-wave excitations, where the existence of first term of Bloch T{sup 3/2} law and the next T{sup 5/2} term are verified experimentally. This spin-wave excitation is detected up to approximately 250K which is a fairly high temperature.
