Metamagnetic Phases and Interplay with Superconductivity of Single Crystal DyNi2B2C Academic Article uri icon


  • DyNi2B2C with T c ~ 6 K, less than the Nel temperature T N , is particularly interesting. Crystal electric field splitting locks the magnetic moments in the ab-plane at low temperature and a series of metamagnetic transitions is observed with increasing field below T N . Detailed measurments of in-plane magnetization, magnetic susceptibility and resistivity of DyNi2B2C single crystals have been carried out in order to investigate the anisotropic interplay between superconductivity and the magnetic phases.
