Abstract

Role of spin chirality on magnetization process of triangular spin rings has been studied. A half step magnetization, unexpected for isothermal process, is observed at the level crossing between the doubly degenerated 5 = 1/2 states and the excited S = 3/2 state. The present result substantiates adiabatic change of magnetization in nano-magnets.
