Magnetic field induced discontinuous spin reorientation in ErFeO3 single crystal

Abstract


  • The spin reorientation of ErFeO3 that spontaneously occurs at low temperature has been previously

    determined to be a process involving the continuous rotation of Fe3þ spins. In this work, the dynamic

    process of spin reorientation in ErFeO3 single crystal has been investigated by AC susceptibility

    measurements at various frequencies and static magnetic fields. Interestingly, two completely

    discontinuous steps are induced by a relatively large static magnetic field due to the variation in the

    magnetic anisotropy during this process. It provides deeper insights into the intriguing magnetic

    exchange interactions which dominate the sophisticated magnetic phase transitions in the orthoferrite

    systems.
