|Title:||Eu2+ Spin Dynamics In The Filled Skutterudites Eum 4sb12 (m=fe, Ru, Os)|
|Abstract:||We report evidence for a close relation between the thermal activation of the rattling motion of the filler guest atoms and inhomogeneous spin dynamics of the Eu2+ spins. The spin dynamics is probed directly by means of Eu2+ electron spin resonance (ESR), performed in both X-band (?9.4 GHz) and Q-band (?34 GHz) frequencies in the temperature interval 4.2K?T?300 K. A comparative study with ESR measurements on the β-Eu8Ga 16Ge30 clathrate compound is presented. Our results point to a correlation between the rattling motion and the spin dynamics which may be relevant for the general understanding of the dynamics of cage systems. © 2011 American Physical Society.|
