Probing spin fluctuations in NaOsO3 by muon spin rotation and NMR spectroscopy
- Journal Article
We have used muon spin rotation and relaxation (μSR) and 23Na nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopic methods in the NaOsO3 antiferromagnetic phase to determine the temperature evolution of the magnetic order parameter and the role of the magnetic fluctuations at the Néel temperature. Additionally, we performed muon spin relaxation measurements in the vicinity of TA = 30 K, where the appearance of an anomaly in the electrical resistivity was suggested to be due to a progressive reduction of the Os magnetic moment associated with spin fluctuation. Our measurements suggest the absence of prominent change in the spin fluctuations frequency at TA, within the muon probing time scale and the absence of a reduction of the localized Os magnetic moment reflected by the stability within few permille of the local magnetic field strength sensed by the muons below 50 K.
