Abstract:

Cu spins in CuN032.2.5H20 are antiferromagnetically coupled in pairs which experience a weaker antiferromagnetic interpair interaction. The linked pairs appear to form one-dimensional arrays. The magnetic and thermal data are quantitatively described by two models in which pairs form 1 rungs of a ladder 2 alternate links of a chain. Unusual behavior upon adiabatic magnetization at very low T is also interpretable with these models. Author
