Neutron Diffraction Study on the Magnetic Structure of 153EuMnO3-δ: One Way to Assess the Magnetic Structure of EuMnO3-δ

Owing to the strong neutron absorption of 151Eu, 151Eu free 153EuMnO3-δ has been synthesized to collect the neutron diffraction data for analyzing the magnetic structure of EuMnO3-δ. The obtained neutron diffraction data of 153EuMnO3-δ indicates that the magnetic diffraction peaks corresponding to cAAFM (canted A-type antiferromagnetic) phase can be observed, but the magnetic diffraction peaks corresponding to expected ICAFM (incommensurate antiferromagnetic) phase may be too weak to be observed.
