Electronic Magnetic Ordering Induced by Hyperfine Interactions in Terbium and Holmium Gallium Garnets

  • J. Hammann

Previous susceptibility measurements on the terbium and the holmium gallium garnets (TbGaG and HoGaG) by Wolf et al 1 down to 1°K and by Cooke et al.2 down to 0.6°K indicated no magnetic ordering for these compounds. The results have been used in the case of TbGaG by Ayant et al 3 to evaluate the crystal-field splitting of the Tb3+ ion and they found two low-lying singlet energy levels well isolated from the upper ones with a separation of Δ = 4.2°K and a magnetic moment at saturation m s of 7.35µB. In the case of HoGaG, Onn and Meyer published specific heat measurements4 which are consistent with the same two-singlet scheme with Δ = 7.4°K.
