Research overview:
Rare earth compound RT2Si2 (R:Rare earths) exhibits several magnetic transitions in a magnetic field. The proposed study is to determine magnetic structures between transitions with a neutron diffraction technique. We can estimate what relation among an exchange interaction, crystalline field effects and magneto-elastic effects causes the magnetic phase transitions, from the determined magnetic structures. The measurements are performed with the high field neutron diffraction system installed at the Kyoto University Reactor at temperatures of 4. 2K to room temperature and at magnetic fields of 0 to 50KOe.
