Orbital ordering to orbital glass transition in spinel FeCr(2-x)Al(x)S4 (0 ⩽ x ⩽ 0.2).

Abstract

The polycrystalline (PC) sample of FeCr2S4 displays orbital ordering around TOO ∼ 9 K, while single crystal sample shows orbital glass. In this paper, with the substitution of Al for Cr, a step by step transition from the orbital ordering to the orbital glass is reported in FeCr(2-x)Al(x)S4 (0 ⩽ x ⩽ 0.2). For PC FeCr2S4, the onset of long-range orbital… (More)
