Abstract
Magnetic systems exhibiting spin-canted states have garnered much attention recently for their promising rich exotic properties driven by the real-space spin textures and competing magnetic orders. In this study, we present the structural and magnetic properties of hexagonal 60 nm MnPtGa epitaxial thin films grown by magnetron sputtering on Al2O3(0001) single-crystalline substrates. The MnPtGa film crystallizes in the centrosymmetric P63/mmc (No. 194) space group, showing perpendicular magnetic anisotropy along the c-axis, with a Curie temperature TC = 263 K. In addition, the MnPtGa film undergoes a spin reorientation transition at Tsr = 160 K. We investigated the MnPtGa magnetic ground states using single-crystal neutron diffraction. A structurally forbidden (001) magnetic Bragg reflection emerges below Tsr, indicating the existence of a spin-canted state, where the magnetic moments align ferromagnetically perpendicular to the basal plane, and a non-zero in-plane component exhibits an antiferromagnetic ordering along the c-axis. At 2 K, the refined magnetic moments of Mn are μz = 4.2(4) μB and μx = 1.5(3) μB, projected onto the c-axis and basal plane, respectively. Hence, we determined a 20° Mn spin canting angle off from the c-axis. © 2022 Author(s).
