# Magnetic anisotropy and orbital ordering in Ca2RuO4

@article{Porter2018MagneticAA, title={Magnetic anisotropy and orbital ordering in Ca2RuO4}, author={D. G.

We review the magnetic and orbital ordered states in \cro{} by performing Resonant Elastic X-ray Scattering (REXS) at the Ru L$_{2,3}$-edges. In principle, the point symmetry at Ru sites does not constrain the direction of the magnetic moment below $T_N$. However early measurements reported the ordered moment entirely along the $\vec{b}$ orthorhombic axis. Taking advantage of the large resonant enhancement of the magnetic scattering close to the Ru L$_2$ and L$_3$ absorption edges, we monitored…
