Title: Commensurate Dy magnetic ordering associated with incommensurate lattice distortion in multiferroic DyMnO{sub 3}

Abstract

Synchrotron x-ray diffraction and resonant magnetic scattering experiments on a single crystal of orthorhombic DyMnO{sub 3} have been carried out between 4 and 40 K. Below T{sub N}{sup Dy}=5 K, the Dy magnetic moments order in a commensurate structure with propagation vector 0.5 b{sup *}. Simultaneous with the Dy magnetic ordering, an incommensurate lattice modulation with propagation vector 0.905 b{sup *} evolves while the original Mn induced modulation is suppressed and shifts from 0.78 b{sup *} to 0.81 b{sup *}. This points to a strong interference of Mn and Dy induced structural distortions in DyMnO{sub 3} besides a magnetic coupling between the Mn and Dy magnetic moments.
