Low Temperature Magnetic Structure of CrNiAs


Article Preview

The magnetic structure of CrNiAs was determined from magnetisation and powder neutron diffraction experiments. In the 110-182 K temperature range, the compound is ferromagnetic, resulting mainly from the Cr moment of 1.25(5) μB. Below 110 K, neutron diffraction data reveals typical satellite reflections which propagation vector is 0.228 c*. A model of oscillating magnetic moments was refined from the integrated intensity of the few additional lines.
