Title: Magnetic structure of the mixed antiferromagnet NdMn 0.8 Fe 0.2 O 3

Abstract

The magnetic structure of the mixed antiferromagnet NdMn 0.8Fe 0.2O 3 was resolved. Neutron powder diffraction data definitively resolve the Mn sublattice with a magnetic propagation vector k=(000) and with the magnetic structure (A x, F y, G z) for 1.6 K N(≈ 59 K). The Nd sublattice has a (0, f y, 0) contribution in the same temperature interval. The Mn sublattice undergoes a spin-reorientation transition at T 1 ≈ 13 K while the Nd magnetic moment abruptly increases at this temperature. Powder x-ray diffraction shows a strong magnetoelastic effect at T N but no additional structural phase transitions from 3 to 300 K. Density functional theory calculations confirm the magnetic structure of the undoped NdMnO 3 as part of our analysis. Taken together, these results show that the magnetic structure of the Mn sublattice in NdMn 0.8Fe 0.2O 3 is a combination of the Mn and Fe parent compounds, but the magnetic ordering of the Nd sublattice spans a broader temperature interval than in the case of NdMnO 3 and NdFeO 3. Lastly, this result is a consequence of the fact that the Nd ions do not order independently, but via polarization from the Mn/Fe sublattice.
