We report powder and single-crystal neutron diffraction measurements of the magnetic order in $A{\mathrm{MnBi}}_{2}$ ($A=\mathrm{Sr}$ and Ca), two layered manganese pnictides with anisotropic Dirac fermions on a Bi square net. Both materials are found to order at ${T}_{\mathrm{N}}\ensuremath{\approx}300$ K in $\mathbf{k}=0$ antiferromagnetic structures, with ordered Mn moments at $T=10$ K of approximately $3.8 {\ensuremath{\mu}}_{\mathrm{B}}$ aligned along the $c$ axis. The magnetic structures…

Metamagnetic transitions associated with two antiferromagnetic phases of PrMn1−xSb2 and its magnetic phase diagram
$\mathrm{Pr}{\mathrm{Mn}}_{1\ensuremath{-}x}{\mathrm{Sb}}_{2}$ exhibits two antiferromagnetic orders that are attributed to the two magnetic elements Mn and Pr. Both magnetic phases have an
Spin-Canting-Induced Band Reconstruction in the Dirac Material Ca_{1-x}Na_{x}MnBi_{2}.
A direct link is established between the spin canting and the reconstruction of the electronic band structure, having immediate implications for the spectral weight reshuffling in the optical response, signaling a partial gapping of the Fermi surface, and the dc transport properties below T_{s}.
Absence of Dirac fermions in layered BaZnBi2
Using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy and density functional theory (DFT) we study the electronic structure of layered ${\mathrm{BaZnBi}}_{2}$. Our experimental results show no evidence of
Quasi-2D magnetism and origin of the Dirac semimetallic behavior in nonstoichiometric Sr$_{1-y}$Mn$_{1-z}$Sb$_{2}$ (y, z~$<$0.1)
Nonstoichiometric Sr$_{1-y}$Mn$_{1-z}$Sb$_{2}$ (y, z~$<$0.1) is known to exhibit a coexistence of magnetic order and the nontrivial semimetallic behavior related to Dirac or Weyl fermions. Here, we
Nontrivial topology in the layered Dirac nodal-line semimetal candidate SrZnSb2 with distorted Sb square nets
Dirac states hosted by Sb/Bi square nets are known to exist in the layered antiferromagnetic AMnX$_2$ (A = Ca/Sr/Ba/Eu/Yb, X=Sb/Bi) material family the space group to be P4/nmm or I4/mmm. In this
Electrodynamic properties of the semimetallic Dirac material SrMnBi2 : Two-carrier-model analysis
The electrodynamics of free carriers in the semimetallic Dirac material $\mathrm{SrMnB}{\mathrm{i}}_{2}$ was investigated using optical spectroscopy and first-principles calculations. Using a
Magnetic mixed valent semimetal EuZnSb2 with Dirac states in the band structure
We report discovery of new antiferromagnetic semimetal EuZnSb$_2$, obtained and studied in the form of single crystals. Electric resistivity, magnetic susceptibility and heat capacity indicate
Absence of Dirac states in BaZnBi 2 induced by spin-orbit coupling
We report magnetotransport properties of BaZnBi$_{2}$ single crystals. Whereas electronic structure features Dirac states, such states are removed from the Fermi level by spin-orbit coupling (SOC)
Spin dynamics of a magnetic Weyl semimetal Sr1−xMn1−ySb2
Dirac matters provide a platform for exploring the interplay of their carriers with other quantum phenomena. Sr$_{1-x}$Mn$_{1-y}$Sb$_2$ has been proposed to be a magnetic Weyl semimetal and provides
Enhanced magnetopiezoelectric effect at the Néel temperature in CaMn2Bi2
We have experimentally studied a magnetopiezoelectric effect (MPE), i.e., dynamic distortion caused by AC electric currents, in the antiferromagnetic conductor ${\mathrm{CaMn}}_{2}{\mathrm{Bi}}_{2}$
