244_06/2007Magnetic ordering of Mn and Ru in (La0.52Ba0.48) (Mn0.51Ru0.49)O3

The cover picture of the current issue relates to the article by S. Y. Wu et al. [1]. The authors study the crystal structure and magnetic properties of a polycrystalline (La0.52Ba0.48) (Mn0.51Ru0.49)O3 sample. The critical temperatures of Ru and Mn were determined using the temperature dependent peak intensities. Neutron magnetic diffraction measurements show anomalies that are associated with the ferromagnetic ordering of the Mn and Mn/Ru spins, respectively, with the spin magnetic moments (shown as arrows) either parallel or at an inclined angle to the c-axis direction.

The corresponding author Sheng Yun Wu is Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics of the National Dong Hwa University in Hualien, Taiwan. His research interests include the study of magnetic properties in perovskite system and spin polarization of closed d-shell nanoparticles.
