Title: Magnetostriction-induced tetragonal-to-orthorhombic phase transition in TbNi[sub 2]B[sub 2]C

Abstract

A magnetostriction-induced structural phase transition in a single crystal of TbNi[sub 2]B[sub 2]C has been studied by high resolution x-ray diffraction. On cooling, we have observed a tetragonal-to-orthorhombic distortion below the N[acute e]el temperature, 14.3 K, similar to what has been seen in ErNi[sub 2]B[sub 2]C. The mismatch between the [ital a] and [ital b] lattice parameters increases continuously with decreasing temperature up to a value of a/b[minus]1[approx]0.55[percent] at the lowest temperature measured, T=8.6 K.
