Magnetovolume effect, macroscopic hysteresis, and moment collapse in the paramagnetic state of cubic MnGe under pressure

Abstract : Itinerant magnets generally exhibit pressure-induced transitions towards nonmagnetic states. Using synchrotron-based x-ray diffraction and emission spectroscopy, the evolution of the lattice and spin moment in the chiral magnet MnGe was investigated in the paramagnetic state and under pressures up to 38 GPa. The collapse of the spin moment takes place in two steps. A first-order transition with a huge hysteresis around 7 GPa transforms the system from the high-spin state at ambient pressure to a low-spin state. The coexistence of spin states and observation of history-depending irreversibility is explained as the effect of long-range elastic strains mediated by magnetovolume coupling. Only in a second transition, at about 23 GPa, does the spin moment collapse.
