Abstract

The high-field X-ray diffraction measurement of a re-entrant ferromagnet SmMn2Ge2 with a tetragonal structure was carried out. The unit cell volume contracts by approximately 0.3% in the antiferromagnetic (AFM) state, compared with that of the ferromagnetic (FM) state. In the AFM state, the structural distortion recovers due to a high magnetic field, accompanied by the metamagnetic transition from the AFM state to the forced FM state.
