Abstract:

The uniaxial dipolar anisotropy in antiferro magnetic MnO and NiO aligns the two opposing sublattice moments in an easy 111 plane. The two normal modes for small oscillations of the sublattice magnetizations about a preferred direction within this plane are both nondegenerate and linearly polarized. The high frequency mode has been observed at low temperatures 2 K at 27.5 and 36.6 cm in MnO and NiO, respectively. In agreement with the unobservably small second order Zeeman shift expected for these nonde generate modes, a 10.7 koe field was found to have no effect on the observed resonance fre quencies. Increasing the sample temperature decreases the frequency of the mode in each case. Author
