Abstract

Magnetic and structural properties of Sn-substituted Mn2Sb were investigated. A first-order magnetic transition (FOMT) from a ferrimagnetic (FRI) to an antiferromagnetic state occurred between 100 and 200 K, which was accompanied by an iso-structural transformation. Upon cooling in 5 T, the residual FRI phase was observed even at 10 K, and the residual FRI phase slightly decreased with increasing time. The results indicate that the FOMT of Mn2Sb0.9Sn0.1 is arrested by applying a magnetic field.
