Magnetic and Transport Properties of Chiral Antiferromagnetic Co2 xPdxMo3N Thin Films

Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interaction (DMI) induced ferromagnetic (FM) skyrmions in chiral magnets have been reported last decade1,2. On the other hand, chiral antiferromagnet could be a great candidate to host antiferromagnetic (AFM) skyrmions, which have not been studied yet. The emergence of room-temperature FM skyrmions has been reported in the field β-Mn type Fe2-xPdxMo3N epitaxial thin films1. We report Pd doping effect on magnetic and transport properties of a series of chiral antiferromagnetic filled β-Mn type Co2-xPdxMo3N (CPMN) thin films. A series of CPMN (x = 0 ~ 1.61) thin films were fabricated on c-plane sapphire substrates. Figure 1(a) shows the 2θ/θ scan XRD pattern of a CPMN thin film with x = 1.01, indicating that CPMN films grown epitaxially in the (110) direction, as in case of Fe2-xPdxMo3N/Al2O31. Figure 1(b) shows the x dependence of c0 indicating the on-site doping of Pd. Figure 1(c) shows the M-T curve of a CPMN film with x = 1.01, where two anomalies are identified, which appeared in all CPMN films. The high-temperature anomaly could be related to the Néel temperature TN, as in case of bulk Co2Mo3N3. The magnetization MS at 200 K is 3×10-2 μB/f.u., which is 70 times smaller than that of ferromagnetic Fe2-xPdxMo3N films1, which suggests that the high-temperature magnetic phase is a canted antiferromagnetic (AFM) phase. The low-temperature anomaly can be ascribed to the spin reorientation, at which temperature (TSR) the transition between AFM phase and spiral phase occurs as reported in chiral antiferromagnetic K2V3O84. The low-temperature spiral phase is also revealed by topological Hall effect (THE) at 4 K (Fig. 1(d)). The vanishing THE in canted AFM phase at 200 K (Fig. 1(d)) might be due to the AFM skyrmions. We will report the details of magnetic and transport properties of CPMN system.
