Title: Magnetic, ferroelectric, and spin phonon coupling studies of Sr{sub 3}Co{sub 2}Fe{sub 24}O{sub 41} multiferroic Z-type hexaferrite

Abstract

The magnetic, Raman, ferroelectric, and in-field {sup 57}Fe Mössbauer studies of polycrystalline multiferroic Sr{sub 3}Co{sub 2}Fe{sub 24}O{sub 41} are reported in this paper. From the magnetization studies, it is observed that the sample is soft magnetic in nature with low temperature magnetic spin transitions like longitudinal to transverse conical structure around 130 K and change in magnetic crystalline anisotropy from conical to planar structure at 250 K. Ferroelectric studies of the sample exhibit the spontaneous polarization at low temperature. Strong spin phonon and spin lattice coupling is observed through low temperature Raman spectroscopy. From the in-field {sup 57}Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy, spin up and spin down site occupations of Fe ions are calculated in the unit cell.

  • Highlights: {yields} Single-phase Sr{sub 3}Co{sub 2}Z was obtained in a very narrow temperature range. {yields} Sr{sub 3}Co{sub 2}Z ferrite prepared by polymerizable complex method showed typical M-H curve of soft ferrite. -- Abstract: Synthesis of single-phase Sr{sub 3}Co{sub 2}Fe{sub 24}O{sub 41} Z-type (Sr{sub 3}Co{sub 2}Z) ferrite was realized by adopting the polymerizable complex method. Crystal structure of samples has been investigated by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD). Single-phase Sr{sub 3}Co{sub 2}Z ferrite was obtained by heating at 1473 K for 5 h in air. Magnetic properties were discussed by measurements of M-H curves with vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). Sr{sub 3}Co{sub 2}Zmore » ferrite prepared by polymerizable complex method showed typical M-H curve of soft ferrite, with a saturation magnetization of 21.5{mu}{sub B}/formula unit (50.5 emu/g) and a coercive force of 0.014 T at room temperature.« less
  • In this Letter, we investigate the magnetic and multiferroic properties of a W-type hexaferrite SrZn{sub 1.15}Co{sub 0.85}Fe{sub 16}O{sub 27}. Due to the strong planar contribution to the anisotropy provided by Co{sup 2+} ions, this hexaferrite shows a spin reorientation transition from easy-axis to easy-cone at 302 K, which is different from the onset temperature of ferroelectric polarization, 275 K. By applying magnetic field, a remarkable drop of polarization is observed, suggesting a large magnetoelectric effect in this multiferroics. The difference between spin reorientation and ferroelectric phase transition temperature as well as the origin of magnetoelectric effect are discussed.
  • The giant magnetoresistance and magnetoelectric (ME) effects of Z-type hexaferrite Sr{sub 3}Co{sub 2}Fe{sub 24}O{sub 41} were investigated. The present experiments indicated that an induced magnetoelectric current in a transverse conical spin structure not only presented a nonlinear behavior with magnetic field and electric field but also depended upon a sweep rate of the applied magnetic field. More interestingly, the ME current induced magnetoresistance was measured, yielding a giant room temperature magnetoresistance of 32.2% measured at low magnetic fields (∼125 Oe). These results reveal great potential for emerging applications of multifunctional magnetoelectric ferrite materials.
  • We prepared multiferroic Y-type hexaferrite Ba{sub 0.5}Sr{sub 1.5}Zn{sub 2}Fe{sub 12}O{sub 22} ceramics and compared their magnetic and dielectric properties with single crystal. Magnetic susceptibility and microwave resonance measurement revealed magnetic phase transition at T{sub C}=312 K, similar as in single crystal. Ferroelectric (FE) phase can be induced by external magnetic field in all investigated samples and the phase diagram in ceramics qualitatively resembles that of the single crystal. The range of magnetic fields, where the FE phase is induced, broadens after annealing of single crystal. Ceramics quenched after sintering exhibit several orders of magnitude lower conductivity than the single crystal.more » Heavily damped magnetic resonance was discovered in terahertz spectra at 10 K and its frequency softens below 5 GHz near T{sub C}. Number and symmetry of observed infrared (IR) and Raman active phonons correspond to paraelectric phase with D{sub 3d}{sup 5} hexagonal structure. No evidence for a structural phase transition was found in the IR and Raman spectra on cooling (in zero magnetic field) or in the room-temperature IR spectra with external static magnetic field up to 0.3 T.« less
