Abstract [en]

The structural and magnetic properties of a new ternary Ir–Mn–Ge phase, Mn3IrGe, as well as the solid solution Mn3Ir(Si1−xGex), 0⩽x⩽1, have been investigated by means of X-ray and neutron powder diffraction, magnetization measurements and first principles calculations. The crystal structure is cubic, of the AlAu4-type (an ordered form of the β-Mn structure), Z=4, space group P213, and the unit-cell dimension varies linearly with the silicon content. For all compositions, antiferromagnetic ordering is found below a critical temperature of about 225 K. The magnetic structure is noncollinear, as a result of frustrated magnetic interactions on a triangular network of Mn atoms, on which the moments rotate 120° around the triangle axes. The magnitude of the magnetic moment at 10 K is 3.39(4) μB for Mn3IrGe. The theoretical calculations reproduce with very good accuracy the magnitudes as well as the directions of the experimentally observed magnetic moments.
