Аннотация: MnGeO3 single crystals have been grown by a flux method. The obtained MnGeO3 is orthorhombic; a P-bca space group does not undergo any structural phase transitions in the range from room temperature to 900 degrees C. Magnetic measurements carried out for the first time on the MnGeO3 single crystal have revealed higher values (T-N =Показать полностью38 K and theta = -100 K) as compared to the data for polycrystalline samples reported in the literature (T-N =10 K and 14 K, theta = -54 K and -46 K). These magnetic parameters for polycrystalline samples synthesized by us are close to the literature data. A Mossbauer spectrum taken at T=300 K for a sample containing 5% (Fe2O3)-O-57 shows that manganese ions, Mn2+, occupy two non-equivalent positions and iron is included ina sublattice as Fe2+ and distributed among two positions substituting Mn2+. In this study, the magnetic characteristics are shown to be sensitive even to minor impurity amounts. The MnGeO3 magnetic structure and one of possible reasons causing the effect of impurities on the MnGeO3 magnetic properties are considered in the framework of a simple indirect coupling model.
