Local magnetism and magnetoelectric effect in HoMnO3 studied with muon-spin relaxation

Abstract:

We present the results of muon-spin relaxation (μ+ SR) measurements on the hexagonal manganite HoMnO3. Features in the temperature-dependent relaxation rate λ correlate with the magnetic transitions at 76, 38, and 34 K. The highest temperature transition, associated with the ordering of Mn3+ moments has the largest effect on λ. The application of a static electric field of E=5× 106 Vm-1 below T=50K causes a small reduction in λ which is suggestive of coupling between ferroelectric and magneti...
