Abstract

Magnetic measurements have been performed to investigate nonmagnetic impurity effects on a Zn-doped ladder system (Cui1-ϰZnϰ)2(C5H12N2)2Cl4. The paramagnetic contribution in the susceptibility ϰˊ of the Zn-doped system increases with increasing ϰ below the gap temperature. The susceptibility obeys the Curie law in the temperature range between 0.5 K and 2 K. However, at temperatures below 0.5 K. ϰˊT drops with decreasing temperature, which suggests the crossover in the Curie constant as predicted by Sigrist and Furusaki [J. Phys. Soc. Jpn. 65 (1996) 2385]. Magnetization curves of the Zn-doped system are compared with that of the pure system. The impurity-induced spin behaves like a paramagnetic S= 1/2 spin and the spin-gap state survives even in the Zn-doped system with the content ϰ up to 0.117. These results seem to originate from the weak interladder interaction of the system.
