Paper on SrRu2O6 published in PRB Rapid Communications


A quasi-two-dimensional honeycomb ruthenate has been synthesized by members of IRG-1.  Neutron diffraction shows antiferromagnetic ordering in each layer and between layers up to a temperature of 565 K.  At this critical temperature, the layers magnetically decouple due to the weak inter-layer coupling which we can understand through a combinations of density functional theory calculations and Monte-Carlo simulations.
