Angular dependence of metamagnetic transitions in DyAgSb2 Academic Article uri icon


  • Measurements of the magnetization of (Formula presented) reveal a complex system of up to 11 well-defined metamagnetic states for the field applied within the basal plane. Measurements of the magnetization vs the angle the applied field makes with respect to the [110] axis show the (Formula presented) moments are constrained to lie along one of the four [110] directions within the basal plane. From the angular dependence of the critical fields and plateau magnetizations, the net distribution of the moments may be deduced for each state. Finally, the coupling constants are calculated within the framework of the four-position clock model. 1999 The American Physical Society.
