Competing anisotropies in the chiral cubic magnet Co8Zn8Mn4 unveiled by resonant x-ray magnetic scattering

arXiv has published an article by Ukleev et Al about the use of x-ray resonant magnetic small-angle scattering to investigate the temperature dependence of the anisotropic properties of the helical phase in Co8Zn8Mn4.

Silson’s silicon nitride membranes were used for the sample preparation for the resonant elastic soft x-ray scattering (REXS). The Co8Zn8Mn4 lamella was attached to our gold-coated silicon nitride membrane with Pt contacts. Measurements of the sample were performed on the VEKMAG (Vector Superconducting Magnet) – PM2 Beamline at BESSY II, Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, Germany
