Since the discovery of ferrimagnetism in 1948, noncollinear ferrimagnets have been well studied in spinels, AB2X4. The key essence is the competition of magnetic exchanges within or between the two A and B lattices. Yafet and Kittel (YK) proposed a model for triangular-structure ground states. To realize unconventional ferrimagnetic structures beyond the YK model, one can consider that spontaneous lattice deformation will modulate these main antiferromagnetic exchanges, i.e., through a spin-lattice coupling mechanism. This kind of spin-lattice coupling mechanism, however, has not been taken into account in previous theoretical works on ferrimagnetic spinels.
In this talk, using ultrasound and magnetostriction results up to 60 T, magnetization measurements up to 110 T, and Monte Carlo calculations, we demonstrate that the spin-lattice coupling induces unconventional magnetic structures under magnetic fields in the YK spinel MnCr2S4.
