CeSb2 is one of a family of rare earth magnetic materials that exhibit metamagnetism where the magnetic state can be changed by an applied magnetic field. At low temperature it exhibits a complex phase diagram with multiple magnetically ordered phases for many of which the order parameter is only poorly understood. In this talk I will report Scanning Tunneling Microscopy and magnetization measurements of CeSb2. I introduce a new mode of STM measurements which allows for the characterization of the sample magnetostriction and thus the construction of a bulk phase diagram using an STM. From the magnetostriction measurement, we determine the bulk phase diagram and validate it by comparison with magnetization measurements. Our magnetostriction and magnetisation measurements indicate the low temperature ground state at zero field is ferrimagnetic. Quasiparticle interference mapping showing how the electronic behaviour develops through the phase diagram will also be discussed.
