Abstract
In the triangular layered magnet PdCrO2 the intralayer magnetic interactions are strong; however, the lattice structure frustrates interlayer interactions. In spite of this, long-range, 120 degrees antiferromagnetic order condenses at T-N = 38 K. We show here through neutron scattering measurements under in-plane uniaxial stress and in-plane magnetic field that this occurs through a spontaneous breaking of the threefold rotational symmetry of the nonmagnetic lattice, which relieves the interlayer frustration. We also show through resistivity measurements that uniaxial stress can suppress thermal magnetic disorder within the antiferromagnetic phase.
