Abstract / Description:Neutron diffraction was used to determine the crystal structure and
magnetic ordering pattern of a La2CuO4 single crystal, with and without
applied magnetic field. A previously unreported, subtle monoclinic
distortion of the crystal structure away from the orthorhombic space
group Bmab was detected. The distortion is also present in lightly
Sr-doped crystals. A refinement of the crystal structure shows that the
deviation from orthorhombic symmetry is predominantly determined to
drive a continuous reorientation of the copper spins from the
orthorhombic b axis to the c axis, directly confirming predictions
based on prior magnetoresistance and Raman scattering experiments. A
spin-flop transition induced by a c-axis oriented field previously
reported for nonstoichiometric La2CuO4 is also observed, but the
transition field (11.5 T) is significantly larger than that in the
previous work.
