Caloric effects of solids provide more efficient and environment-friendly innovative refrigeration systems compared to the widely-used conventional vapor compressive cooling systems. Exploring novel caloric materials is challenging but critically important in developing future technologies. Here we discovered that the quadruple perovskite structure ferrimagnet BiCuCrO shows a large multicaloric effect at the first-order charge transition occurred around 190 K. Large latent heat and the corresponding isothermal entropy changes 28.2 J K kg can be fully utilized by applying both magnetic fields (magnetocaloric effect) and pressure (barocaloric effect). Adiabatic temperature changes reach 3.9 K for the 50 kOe magnetic field and 4.8 K for the 4.9 kbar pressure, and thus highly efficient thermal controls are achieved by multiple ways.

In this study, we systematically investigate three-dimensional(3D) momentum-resolved electronic structures of Ruddlesden-Popper-type iridium oxides SrIrO using soft-X-ray angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (SX-ARPES). Our results provide direct evidence of an insulator-to-metal transition that occurs upon increasing the dimensionality of the IrO-plane structure. This transition occurs when the spin-orbit-coupled = 1/2 band changes its behavior in the dispersion relation and moves across the Fermi energy. By scanning the photon energy over 350 eV, we reveal the 3D Fermi surface in SrIrO and -dependent oscillations of photoelectron intensity in SrIrO. To corroborate the physics deduced using low-energy ARPES studies, we propose to utilize SX-ARPES as a powerful complementary technique, as this method surveys more than one whole Brillouin zone and provides a panoramic view of electronic structures.

Spin fluctuations were studied over a wide momentum () and energy () space in the frustrated -electron heavy-fermion metal LiVO by time-of-flight inelastic neutron scattering. We observed the overall evolutions near the characteristic = 0.6 peak and found another weak broad magnetic peak around 2.4 . The data are described by a simple response function, a partially delocalized magnetic form factor, and antiferromagnetic short-range spatial correlations, indicating that heavy-fermion formation is attributable to spin-orbit fluctuations with orbital hybridization.

We investigate LiVS and LiVSe with a triangular lattice as itinerant analogues of LiVO known for the formation of a valence-bond solid (VBS) state out of an S = 1 frustrated magnet. LiVS, which is located at the border between a metal and a correlated insulator, shows a first order transition from a paramagnetic metal to a VBS insulator at T 305 K upon cooling. The presence of a VBS state in the close vicinity of insulator-metal transition may suggest the importance of itinerancy in the formation of a VBS state. We argue that the high temperature metallic phase of LiVS has a pseudogap, likely originating from the VBS fluctuation. LiVSe was found to be a paramagnetic metal down to 2 K.

Local structure analysis of Cu and Ge atoms in the negative thermal expansion material MnCuGeN was conducted using X-ray absorption fine structure measurements. The temperature dependence of the interatomic distance was found to reflect the macroscopic negative thermal expansion both for Cu-Mn and Ge-Mn shells, although the magnitude of the relative change was much larger for Ge-Mn than Cu-Mn. An enhanced anomaly of the Debye-Waller factor was observed for the Ge-Mn shell in the temperature region of the negative expansion, indicating the presence of static local disorder around Ge impurities. These local structure anomalies strongly suggest that the local and inhomogeneous strain around Ge is essential in broadening the discontinuous volume contraction.

Giant negative thermal expansion is achieved in antiperovskite manganese nitrides when the sharp volume change associated with magnetic ordering is broadened by substitution. In this Letter, we address the unique role of the "magic" element, Ge, for such broadening in MnCuGeN. We present evidence for a local lattice distortion well described by the low-temperature tetragonal () structure of MnGeN for a range of , where the overall structure remains cubic. This structural instability shows a strong correlation with the broadness of the growth of the ordered magnetic moment and, hence, is considered to trigger the broadening of the volume change.

Recently, two consecutive phase transitions were observed, upon cooling, in an antiferromagnetic spinel GeNiO at K and K, respectively. Using unpolarized and polarized elastic neutron scattering we show that the two transitions are due to the existence of frustrated minority spins in this compound. Upon cooling, at the spins on the 111 kagom planes order ferromagnetically in the plane and antiferromagnetically between the planes (phase I), leaving the spins on the 111 triangular planes that separate the kagom planes frustrated and disordered. At the lower , the triangular spins also order in the 111 plane (phase II). We also present a scenario involving exchange interactions that qualitatively explains the origin of the two purely magnetic phase transitions.

Magnetic structures in an antiperovskite system MnCuGeN with a large magneto-volume effect above =0.15 have been studied by neutron powder diffraction measurement. The present neutron study revealed that not only a cubic crystal structure, but also a antiperovskite spin structure, is a key ingredient of the large magneto-volume effect in this itinerant electron system. The large magneto-volume effect is possibly ascribed to the geometrical frustration originating from the corner-shared octahedra of the antiperovskite sturucture.

We performed high-resolution scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy on an optimally-doped CaNaCuOCl crystal. The so-called checkerboard local-density-of-state modulation manifests in the spectroscopic map of the optimally-doped sample. In addition, spatially-inhomogeneous energy gap is observed. The gap tends to be buried at elevated temperatures and correlates with the checkerboard modulation. These results suggest that the gap is related to superconductivity which coexists with the checkerboard modulation.

A frustrated spinel CdCrO undergoes a three-dimensional spin-Peierls transition at = 7.8 K from a cubic paramagnetic to a tetragonal Nel state. The Nel state has a spiral magnetic structure with a characteristic wave vector of when the axis elongated. Here we report our spherical neutron polarimetry experiments to investigate the spiral spin structure in detail. Our results indicate that the spins lie in the plane perpendicular to the direction of the spiral modulation. We also found that the spiral structure in the plane is elliptical with the -component larger by 24% than the -component, suggesting a strong coupling between the magnetic structure and structural distortion. Unpolarized neutron diffraction under an external magnetic field has also been performed. The magnetic field dependence suggests existence of magnetic anisotropy in the Nel state, which is consistent with our previous inelastic studies.

CdCrO has the spinel structure, in which geometrical frustration exists between the Cr moments located at the corners of the tetrahedron. It shows an incommensurate antiferromagnetic ordering below =7.8K with a characteristic wave vector of (). We first performed a 1D polarized neutron analysis and determined that the Cr moments has a planer anisotropy in the plane, indicating that the magnetic structure is spiral. Finally, the 3D polarized neutron analysis using a CRYOPAD on TAS-1 at JRR-3 determined that the magnetic structure is elliptical spiral in the plane with ellipsoid slightly elongated along the axis. The origin of the structure will be discussed.
