Flat band phase transition in gadolinium garnet, a frustrated antiferromagnet
Dr N d'Ambrumenil
Applications accepted all year round
Gadolinium garnet, Gd3Ga5O12 (GGG), is a frustrated antiferromagnet with a ground state which does not show long-range order. The interaction between local (S7/2) moments on the Gd sites is thought to be well described by a nearest neighbour exchange together with the long-range dipole interaction .
