A low-dimensional iron(II) phosphate exhibiting field-dependent magnetization steps

Large single crystals of the new magnetic solid RbNa3Fe7(PO4)6 can be grown in a salt flux. Below the ferro-to-antiferromagnetic transition temp. of 6 K, the field (H) dependence of the magnetization (M) of an oriented crystal of exhibits equally spaced steps (arrows), which are probably a result of spin frustration.
