Magnetic correlations in the extended kagome YBaCo4O7 probed by single-crystal neutron scattering.
We have studied the frustrated system YBaCo4O7.0 generally described as an alternating stacking of kagome and triangular layers of magnetic ions on a trigonal lattice, by single-crystal neutron diffraction experiments above the Néel ordering transition. Experimental data reveal pronounced magnetic diffuse scattering, which is successfully modeled by direct Monte Carlo simulations. Long-range magnetic correlations are found along the c axis, due to the presence of corner-sharing bipyramids, cr...Expand abstract
