Magnetism and Structural Behavior of CeRuSn Single Crystal

Abstract:

Article Preview

We have synthesized CeRuSn single crystals and performed measurements of electrical resistivity and specific heat. At high temperatures, abrupt transitions were observed at 290 and 225 K in electrical resistivity during cooling. Both transitions are connected with a large temperature hysteresis. Low temperature properties are dominated by an antiferromagnetic transition at 2.9 K, which involves only half of cerium ions, leaving the rest of them non-magnetic. A significant magnetocrystalline anizotropy was revealed by application of external magnetic field.
