Magnetic order near 270 K in mineral and synthetic Mn2FeSbO6 ilmenite
2011 (English)In: Applied Physics Letters, ISSN 0003-6951, E-ISSN 1077-3118, Vol. 98, no 20, 202505-1-202505-3 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The structural and magnetic properties of Mn2FeSbO6 single-crystalline mineral and ceramic samples synthesized under thermobaric treatment have been investigated, and compared to theoretical predictions based on first-principles electronic structure calculations. This ilmenite system displays a sharp magnetic transition just below the room temperature related to a ferrimagnetic ordering of the Mn2+ and Fe3+ cations, which makes Mn2FeSbO6 a promising candidate for designing functional magnetic materials.
