Observation of Ferromagnetic and Antiferromagnetic Correlations in UIr3B2

A general susceptibility (χq,ω) evaluation from the Knight shift and nuclear spin–lattice relaxation measurements via 11B NMR technique has been carried out on single crystal UIr3B2. The experimental results revealed two distinct temperature regimes in which the magnetic state dynamics are different from one another. Above T* ≃50 K, the temperature variation of χq,ω is mainly subject to q = 0 fluctuations, suggesting that ferromagnetic correlations develop at high temperatures. On the other hand, antiferromagnetic finite-q components abruptly emerge and show remarkable growth below T*. Even at low temperatures, ferromagnetic correlations persist, but χq,ω develops significant dispersion with antiferromagnetic components. The origin of the observed magnetic correlations is discussed in terms of the low dimensionality which is derived from the highly anisotropic structure of UIr3B2.

- The recent X-ray diffraction measurement by Yamaura et al. claimed that actual unit cell of UIr3B2 will be different from ever known symmetry, whereas each atomic sites are the almost same as CeCo3B2-type structure. The detailed analysis is in progress.
