Title: On magnetic structure of CuFe 2Ge 2: Constrains from the 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy

57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy measurements were performed on a powdered CuFe 2Ge 2 sample that orders antiferromagnetically at ~175 K. Whereas a paramagnetic doublet was observed above the Néel temperature, a superposition of paramagnetic doublet and magnetic sextet (in approximately 0.5:0.5 ratio) was observed in the magnetically ordered state, suggesting a magnetic structure similar to a double-Q spin density wave with half of the Fe paramagnetic and another half bearing static moment of ~0.5–1μ B. Lastly, these results call for a re-evaluation of the recent neutron scattering data and band structure calculations, as well as for deeper examination of details of sample preparation techniques.
