The magnetic properties and structure of the quasi-two-dimensional antiferromagnet CoPS$_3$

Abstract

The magnetic properties and magnetic structure are presented for CoPS$_3$, a quasi-two-dimensional antiferromagnet on a honeycomb lattice with a Néel temperature of $T_{\rm N} \sim120$ K. The compound is shown to have XY-like anisotropy in its susceptibility, and the anisotropy is analysed to extract crystal field parameters. For temperatures between 2 K and 300 K, no phase transitions were observed in the field-dependent magnetization up to 10 Tesla. Single-crystal neutron diffraction shows that the magnetic propagation vector is k = (010) with the moments mostly along the ${\bf a}$ axis and with a small component along the ${\bf c}$ axis, which largely verifies the previously-published magnetic structure for this compound. The magnetic Bragg peak intensity decreases with increasing temperature as a power law with exponent $2\beta = 0.60 \pm 0.01$ for $T > 0.9~T_{\rm N}$ .
