Spinreorientation transitions in the Cairo pentagonal magnet ${\mathbf{Bi}}_{4}{\mathbf{Fe}}_{5}{\mathbf{O}}_{13}\mathbf{F}$
Abstract
Here, we show that interlayer spins play a dual role in the Cairo pentagonal magnet Bi_{4}Fe_{5}O_{13}F, on one hand mediating the threedimensional magnetic order, and on the other driving spinreorientation transitions both within and between the planes. The corresponding sequence of magnetic orders unraveled by neutron diffraction and Mössbauer spectroscopy features two orthogonal magnetic structures described by opposite local vector chiralities, and an intermediate, partly disordered phase with nearly collinear spins. A similar collinear phase has been predicted theoretically to be stabilized by quantum fluctuations, but Bi_{4}Fe_{5}O_{13}F is very far from the relevant parameter regime. While the observed inplane reorientation cannot be explained by any standard frustration mechanism, our ab initio bandstructure calculations reveal strong singleion anisotropy of the interlayer Fe^{3+} spins that turns out to be instrumental in controlling the local vector chirality and the associated interlayer order.
