We elucidate the magnetic interactions and the role of spin (electron) correlation in determining the ground state of the honeycomb compound Mn4Ta2O9, by neutron powder diffraction, inelastic neutron scattering (INS), specific-heat (Cp) measurements, and electronic-structure calculations. The antiferromagnetic long-range order with moments along c occurs at 102 K with strong exchange striction and small anisotropy. It is described by the three-dimensional Ising model. Diffuse magnetic...[Show more]
