Title: Origin of the net magnetic moment in LaCoO 3

Abstract

We use polarized neutron scattering to characterize the Bragg scattering intensity below TC=89.5 K at the (1,0,0) pseudocubic nuclear Bragg point of LaCoO3. Upon cooling in a field (FC), a net magnetic moment is apparent in Bragg scattering intensity, just as it was in previous magnetization measurements. Critical behavior associated with the net moment near TC upon cooling in small applied fields rapidly rounds with increasing field strength. We show, using a mean-field calculation, that this net moment can develop in a metastable state that forms upon FC, even when all the interactions in the system are antiferromagnetic.
