Magnetic properties of monoclinic lanthanide metaborates, Ln(BO2)3, Ln  =  Pr, Nd, Gd, Tb

Paromita Mukherjee, E Suard & Sian Dutton
The bulk magnetic properties of the lanthanide metaborates, Ln(BO2)3, Ln = Pr, Nd, Gd, Tb are studied using magnetic susceptibility, heat capacity and isothermal magnetisation measurements. They crystallise in a monoclinic structure containing chains of magnetic Ln3+ and could therefore exhibit features of low-dimensional magnetism and frustration. Pr(BO2)3 is found to have a non-magnetic singlet ground state. No magnetic ordering is observed down to 0.4 K for Nd(BO2)3. Gd(BO2)3 exhibits a sharp magnetic transition at...
