Thermal conductivity of geometrically frustrated, ferroelectric YMnO3: extraordinary spin-phonon interactions.

Abstract

The thermal conductivity of the magnetically frustrated, ferroelectric YMnO3 exhibits an isotropic suppression in the cooperative paramagnetic state, followed by a sudden increase upon magnetic ordering. This unprecedented behavior without an associated static structural distortion probably originates from the strong dynamic coupling between acoustic… (More)
