The Low-Temperature Besnus Magnetic Transition: Signals Due to Monoclinic and Hexagonal Pyrrhotite
The low‐temperature magnetic properties of the many pyrrhotite varieties have not been studied extensively. Monoclinic pyrrhotite (Fe7S8) goes through the Besnus transition at ~30–34 K, which is used widely to diagnose its presence in bulk samples. Other pyrrhotite polytypes are assumed to be antiferromagnetic, although it has been suggested occasionally that some may also have remanence‐carrying capabilities. Here we compare the magnetic properties of monoclinic (4M) and hexagonal (3T)...[Show more]
