Abstract

EuSnP shows an antiferromagnetism below TN = 21 K, in which two metamagnetic transitions were observed with applying magnetic field along both the directions parallel and perpendicular to the c-axis of tetragonal structure. In addition, entropy released up to TN was only ∼ 75 % of R ln 8 which is the value of entropy expected from Eu2+ state. These might bring about novel antiferromagnetic ground state with noncollinear configuration of Eu2+ moments.
