Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

(a) X-ray diffraction patterns for x = 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1 samples at room-temperature. The (hkl) values corresponding to Bragg peaks are marked. (b) Variation of lattice constants and unit cell volume with Co concentration.

FIG. 2.

Temperature dependence of FC and ZFC magnetization M for x = 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1 samples at 300 Oe applied field. Inset shows the enlarged view of the FC and ZFC magnetization for the x = 0.8 and 1 samples.

FIG. 3.

(a) M vs H curves over all the four quadrants for x = 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1 samples at 5 K. (b) The variation of magnetization M S (at 80 kOe) and coercive field with Co concentration. The solid lines are guide to eye.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Magnetization isotherms (a) and (b) at temperatures below T C and low fields for the x = 0.2 and 0.4 samples, respectively. Inset of (a) and (b) shows magnetization isotherms at various temperatures below and above T C . The isotherms are at an interval of 5 K.

FIG. 5.

Magnetic entropy change −ΔS M vs temperature for (a) x = 0.2 and (b) 0.4 samples at different values of applied fields. The inset of (a) and (b) shows the −ΔS M vs T curve for x = 0.2 and 0.4 samples, respectively, for ΔH = 50 kOe. The shaded area corresponds to the relative cooling power.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

(a) and (b) M vs H curves over all the four quadrants for x = 0.6 sample at different temperatures. Inset shows the variation of coercive field with temperature for x = 0.6 sample.

Image of FIG. 7.
FIG. 7.

M vs H curves over all the four quadrants for (a) x = 0.2, and (b) x= 0.8, samples at various temperatures.

Image of FIG. 8.
FIG. 8.

(a), (b), and (c): Neutron diffraction patterns for the x = 0.2 sample at 5, 50, and 300 K, respectively. The open circles represent the observed patterns. The solid lines represent the Rietveld refined patterns. The difference between observed and calculated patterns is also shown at the bottom of each panel by solid lines. The vertical bars indicate the allowed Bragg peaks position for chemical (top row) and magnetic (bottom row) phases. (d) The temperature dependence of the antiferromagnetic (111) Bragg peak.

Image of FIG. 9.
FIG. 9.

(a) Variation of lattice constants and d Mn–Mn with temperature for the x = 0.2 sample. The solid lines are guide to eye. (b) Temperature dependence of the full magnetic moment of Mn (oriented at an angle of +30(1)° (clockwise) and −30(1)° (counter clockwise) to the c-axis for two consecutive layers in the canted-ferromagnetic phase, and in a + − + − sequence along the c-axis in the type-I antiferromagnetic phase) for the x = 0.2 sample. The dotted line separates the canted-ferromagnetic (CFM) and type-I antiferromagnetic (AFM) regions.
