The crystal structures, magnetic order, and susceptibility have been investigated for magnetically frustrated SrDy{sub 2}O{sub 4}, SrHo{sub 2}O{sub 4}, SrEr{sub 2}O{sub 4}, SrTm{sub 2}O{sub 4}, and SrYb{sub 2}O{sub 4}. Powder neutron-diffraction structural refinements reveal columns of LO{sub 6} octahedra that run along one crystallographic direction, with Sr-O polyhedra in the interstices. The lanthanide sublattice displays multiple triangular interconnections: one-dimensional strings form the… CONTINUE READING
