Abstract:

Ordinarily one expects the structural and magnetic properties of a given substance to be intimately related, with the dimensionality of the magnetic or electrical interactions that are present reflecting the lattice dimensionality. For example, a cluster of two interacting magnetic ions should obey a theoretical model whose statistics treat only the pair of interacting spins. Systems in which there are interactions between a small number of spins in a definable cluster within a macroscopic crystal are considered to be zero-dimensional O-D from a lattice viewpoint. Each cluster is assumed to be isolated from neighboring clusters in the crystal structure, and interactions of spins of the individual clusters with the spins on neighboring clusters are assumed to be absent. This basic idea may be generalized to include one dimensional chains 1-D and two-dimensional layers 2-D. Eventually such a process leads to the ultimate reality of a three-dimensional 3-D crystal structure in which there are more or less equally interacting near neighbors. Author
