Specific heat investigation of the magnetic ordering in two frustrated spin-chain oxides: Ca3Co2O6 and Ca3CoRhO6
UNSPECIFIED (2003) Specific heat investigation of the magnetic ordering in two frustrated spin-chain oxides: Ca3Co2O6 and Ca3CoRhO6. JOURNAL OF PHYSICS-CONDENSED MATTER, 15 (33). pp. 5737-5746. ISSN 0953-8984Full text not available from this repository.
Specific heat measurements were carried out on the closely related spin-chain oxides Ca3Co2O6 and Ca3CoRhO6. Both compounds consist of Ising magnetic chains. that are arranged on a triangular lattice. The spin coupling along and between the chains is ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic, respectively. Geometrical frustration is expected from the combination of these magnetic features. The present study reports that the specific heat data of these compounds exhibit similarities in the spin-freezing process at low T, whereas striking differences exist in the antiferromagnetic interchain ordering at higher T. These results are discussed in connection with previous magnetization and neutron diffraction data.
