Abstract

Abstract RNiSb 2 (R = Pr, Nd and Tb) compounds crystallize in the tetragonal CaBe 2Ge 2 type crystal structure and are antiferromagnets with the Néel temperature 6.3 K for R = Pr, 2.3 K for R = Nd and 12 K for R = Tb. Below T N a collinear antiferromagnetic structure of the AFI type is observed for R = Nd, a square modulated structure with the wavevector k = (0, 0, 0.25) for R = Pr and a square and a sine modulated with the wavevector k = (k x,k y,0) for R = Tb . For all compounds the magnetic moments of the rare earth atoms are parallel to c-axis.
