Dielectric spectroscopy of doped spin ice — •Lena Klaas, C. P. Grams, J. Engelmayer, T. Lorenz, and J. Hemberger — II. Physikalisches Institut, Universität zu Köln, Cologne, Germany

Spin-ice systems have raised strong interest due to the emergence of magnetic monopoles. In Dy2Ti2O7 the condensation of these excitations was demonstrated to undergo a first-order phase transition with a critical endpoint at T=0.36 K and µ0 H=1 T in crystallographic [111]-direction. Furthermore, magnetic monopoles also carry electric dipoles[1], making their dynamics accessible by dielectric spectroscopy. Measurements on Dy2Ti2O7 have demonstrated unusual fluctuation dynamics above the critical temperature, a critical speeding-up[2]. To investigate the influence of defects on this relaxation dynamics we studied the system (Dy1−xYx)2(Ti1−yZry)2O7 with different doping levels of non-magnetic Y3+- or Zr4+-ions. Here, we show dielectric measurements up to frequencies of 1 MHz and down to temperatures of 0.2 K and demonstrate that critical speeding-up is observed for Y doping with x up to 10% above which the spin-ice behaviour is suppressed[3].
