Bulk properties of single crystals of the valence-unstable compound SmRh2Si2

We present the crystal growth as well as the structural, chemical and physical chracterization of SmRh2Si2 single crystals. Their ground state is antiferromagnetic, as indicated by the behaviour of

Crystal Growth of Materials with the ThCr2Si2 Structure Type

The single crystal growth of 19 different intermetallic compounds within the LnT2X2 family (with Ln = lanthanides, T = Co, Ru, Rh, Ir, and X = Si, P) is presented, by employing a high‐temperature

Uniaxial and fourfold basal anisotropy in GdRh2Si2

The magnetocrystalline anisotropy of GdRh2Si2 is examined in detail via the electron spin resonance (ESR) of its well-localised Gd3+ moments and it is demonstrated that the experimental in-plane ESR data may be crucial for a precise knowledge of the out-of-plane an isotropy.

Robust and tunable itinerant ferromagnetism at the silicon surface of the antiferromagnet GdRh2Si2

The unique temperature-dependent ferromagnetic properties of the Si-terminated surface in GdRh2Si2 could be exploited when combined with functional adlayers deposited on top for which novel phenomena related to magnetism can be anticipated.

Weak magnetic anisotropy in GdRh2Si2 studied by magnetic resonance

The antiferromagnetically (AFM) ordered state of GdRh$_{2}$Si$_{2}$ which consists of AFM-stacked ferromagnetic layers is investigated by magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The almost isotropic

Robust Magnetic Order Upon Ultrafast Excitation of an Antiferromagnet

The ultrafast manipulation of magnetic order due to optical excitation is governed by the intricate flow of energy and momentum between the electron, lattice, and spin subsystems. While various

Deterministic control of an antiferromagnetic spin arrangement using ultrafast optical excitation

A central prospect of antiferromagnetic spintronics is to exploit magnetic properties that are unavailable with ferromagnets. However, this poses the challenge of accessing such properties for

Spin Orientation of Two-Dimensional Electrons Driven by Temperature-Tunable Competition of Spin-Orbit and Exchange-Magnetic Interactions.

The findings show that the direction of the spins and the spin-splitting of the two-dimensional electrons at the surface can be manipulated in a controlled way by using only one parameter: the temperature.

Single-crystal growth of YbRh2Si2 and YbIr2Si2

We report on the single-crystal growth of the heavy-fermion compounds YbRh2Si2 and YbIr2Si2 using a high-temperature indium-flux technique. The optimization of the initial composition and the

A structural and chemical analysis was conducted by highly accurate x-ray diffraction and wavelength dispersive x-Ray spectroscopy measurements, indicating a homogeneity range of the YbRh2Si2 phase between approximately 40.0–40.2 at.% Rh.

A surprisingly complex magnetic behavior with three successive phase transitions is observed in single crystals of EuRh2Si2, where the sharp metamagnetic transition observed at low fields applied perpendicular to the hard axis is consistent with a change from a spiral to a fan structure.

The effect of hybridization on local magnetic interactions at highly diluted Ce ions in tetragonal intermetallic compounds RERh2Si2 (RE=Ce, Pr, Nd, Gd, Tb, Dy)

It was observed that the variation of the magnetic hyperfine field with temperature follows the expected behaviour for the host magnetization, with the exception of GdRh(2)Si(2), which showed a strong deviation from such a behaviour.

Strong ferromagnetism at the surface of an antiferromagnet caused by buried magnetic moments

It is shown that the Si-Rh-Si surface trilayer of the antiferromagnet EuRh2Si2 bears a surface state, which exhibits an unexpected and large spin splitting controllable by temperature.

YbRh2Si2: Pronounced Non-Fermi-Liquid Effects above a Low-Lying Magnetic Phase Transition

We report the first observation of non-Fermi-liquid (NFL) effects in a clean Yb compound at ambient pressure and zero magnetic field. The electrical resistivity and the specific-heat coefficient of
