Title: Local magnetic cluster size identified by neutron total scattering in the site-diluted spin glass S n x F e 4 - x N ( x = 0.88 )

Abstract

A detailed structure analysis for the site-diluted Sn xFe 4-xN ( x = 0.25, 0.41, and 0.88) has been carried out through complex modeling of the neutron total scattering data. We present quantitative evidence showing the local ferromagnetic cluster size extending to ~8 Å on average when Sn 0.88Fe 3.12N undergoes the spin-glass transition (the other two not showing such a transition). In conclusion, the modeling methodology used in this work involving the corefinement of the nuclear and magnetic structure in both real and reciprocal space can potentially be applied generally to explore a variety of spin-glass material problems.
