Spin Density Distribution of YTiO3 Observed by X-Ray Magnetic Diffraction
An X-ray magnetic diffraction (XMD) is applied to ferromagnetic transition metal oxide YTiO3. The spin magnetic form factors are measured for 81 reciprocal lattice points of h0l, hk0 and 0kl series. Three-dimensional spin density distribution in the real space of YTiO3 is successfully obtained by using Maximum Entropy Method (MEM). This is the first result of spin density in the real space by the XMD.
