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.

  • The spin-phonon coupling in magnetic materials is due to the modulation of the exchange integral by lattice vibrations. BaFe{sub 12}O{sub 19} M-type hexaferrite, which is the most used magnetic material as permanent magnet, transforms into ferrimagnet at high temperatures, but no spin-phonon coupling was previously observed at this transition. In this letter, we investigated the temperature-dependent Raman spectra of polycrystalline BaFe{sub 12}O{sub 19} M-type hexaferrite from room temperature up to 780 K to probe spin-phonon coupling at the ferrimagnetic transition. An anomaly was observed in the position of the phonon attributed to the Fe{sup (4)}O{sub 6}, Fe{sup (5)}O{sub 6}, and Fe{supmore » (1)}O{sub 6} octahedra, evidencing the presence of a spin-phonon coupling in BaM in the ferrimagnetic transition at 720 K. The results also confirmed the spin-phonon coupling is different for each phonon even when they couple with the same spin configuration.« less

  • The magnetic order, spin dynamics, and crystal structure of the multiferroic Sr0.56Ba0.44MnO3 have been investigated using neutron and x-ray scattering. Ferroelectricity develops at T-C = 305 K with a polarization of 4.2 mu C/cm(2) associated with the displacements of the Mn ions, while the Mn4+ spins order below T-N approximate to 200 K into a simple G-type commensurate magnetic structure. Below TN the ferroelectric order decreases dramatically, demonstrating that the two order parameters are strongly coupled. The ground state spin dynamics is characterized by a spin gap of 4.6(5) meV and the magnon density of states peaking at 43 meV.more » Detailed spin wave simulations with a gap and isotropic exchange of J = 4.8(2) meV describe the excitation spectrum well. Above TN strong spin correlations coexist with robust ferroelectric order.« 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.
