Neutron and x-ray scattering study of magnetic manganites
This thesis presents three investigations of the magnetic and electronic proper- ties of manganese oxide materials. The investigations are performed using a variety of neutron scattering and x-ray scattering techniques.
The electronic ground-state of Pr(Sr0.1 Ca0.9)2 Mn2O7 an antiferromagnet with CE-type ordering, is determined using neutron spectroscopy, as opposed to the more usual approach of using diffraction. The Zener polar...Expand abstract
