Experimental Studies of Bicritical Points in 3D Antiferromagnets

  • Y. Shapira
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 106)

Abstract

The theoretical work of Fisher, Nelson, and Kosterlitz 1–3 on the bicritical point (BCP) of a 3d antiferromagnet has stimulated many experimental investigations. Some of these experiments will be reviewed here. Recent works on random fields are not included. A short review of works up to 1976 was given by Wolf.4

Keywords

Phase Boundary Easy Axis Critical Line Easy Plane Spin Dimensionality 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
