Electron Spin Resonance of Nickelate
In the present study we focused on the nickelate system, which presents stable stripe order and allow a large domain of oxygen doping. More specifically, we studied the non-stoichiometric system La2NiO4 in which the oxygen excess tends to order. ESR technique has been used due to its sensibility to microscopic magnetic fluctuations. We present a systematic study of the charge and spin fluctuations in oxygen doped nickelates to get insight into the dynamic of the system using ESR. The intrinsic resonance signal of polycrystalline La2NiO4 - values 0.09 and 0.12 have been studied, in a large temperature range (10K < T < 300 K). The = 0.12 compound has been chosen as a starting point, since neutron diffraction studies in composition very close to this value have been well characterized the stripe order in this system, showing that the holes order at around TCO = 200K, while the spins order at TS = 110K. By analogy, the ESR results on this compound allowed us to interpret the results in the other compound.
