 Title    Magnetism of Alkalitetrafluoromanganates (III) AM11F4 (A = K, Rb, Cs): Neutron Diffraction, Mössbauer and Magnetization Investigations  
 Abstract    The magnetic properties of the d 4 Jahn-Teller systems A'Mn m F 4 with layered structures were investigated. Neutron diffraction on powders of KMnF 4 and RbMnF 4 revealed different antiferro-magnetic spin arrangements below T N = 4.5 K and 2.3 K, respectively: for KMnF 4 canted antiparal-lel along a and b, for RbMnF 4 parallel along a and antiparallel along b, in both cases parallel along c, the stacking direction of layers. Mössbauer investigations on 57 Fe doped KMnF 4 confirmed a spin orientation approximately within the layer plane. A discussion is given of the contributions to the magnetic hyperfine field and the Mössbauer linewidth in quasi-two-dimensional antiferromagnets with Ising anisotropy due to thermal excitation of domain wall dynamics (solitons). The experimen-tal data seem to confirm the predicted exponential temperature dependence of the linewidth. From magnetization measurements on powders and a single crystal of KMnF 4 the 2-d exchange energy and the out-of-plane and in-plane anisotropies could be extracted. In addition, from susceptibility measurements the exchange energies of NaMnF 4 , RbMnF 4 and CsMnF 4 were calculated. A linear dependence of these exchange energies (positive for ferromagnetic CsMnF 4 , negative for the other AMnF 4 compounds) on the cos 2 of the Mn-F-Mn bridge angle is observed and compared with the behaviour of the AFeF 4 compounds which is also linear but with reverse sign of the slope. The specific superexchange mechanisms active in Jahn-Teller systems with antiferrodistortively ordered layers are suggested to be responsible for these findings.
