Modulated magnetic structure in 57Fe doped orthorhombic YbMnO3: A Mössbauer study

Abstract : In the orthorhombic manganites o-RMnO3, where R is a heavy rare earth (R = Gd-Yb), the Mn3+ sublattice is known to undergo two magnetic transitions. The low temperature phase has an antiferromagnetic structure (collinear or elliptical), which has been well characterized by neutron diffraction in most of these compounds. The intermediate phase, occurring in a narrow temperature range (a few K), is documented for R = Gd–Ho as a collinear modulated structure, incommensurate with the lattice spacings. We report here on a 57Fe Mössbauer study of 2% 57Fe doped o-YbMnO3, where the spin only Fe3+ ion plays the role of a magnetic probe. From the analysis of the shape of the magnetic hyperfine Mössbauer spectra, we show that the magnetic structure of the intermediate phase in o-YbMnO3 (38.0 K < T < 41.5 K) is also modulated and incommensurate.
