@article{Nath2008StrongFD, title={Strong frustration due to competing ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic interactions: magnetic properties of M(VO)2(PO4)2 (M = Ca and Sr)}, author={R. Nath and Alexander A. Tsirlin and Enrique E. Kaul and Michael Baenitz and N. Buttgen and C.

We present a detailed investigation of the magnetic properties of complex vanadium phosphates M(VO)2(PO4)2 (M = Ca, Sr) by means of magnetization, specific heat, 31P NMR measurements, and band structure calculations. Experimental data evidence the presence of ferro- and antiferromagnetic interactions in M(VO)2(PO4)2 resulting in a nearly vanishing Curie-Weiss temperature \theta_{CW} < 1 K that contrasts with the maximum of magnetic susceptibility at 3 K. Specific heat and NMR measurements also…
