Magnetic structure and lattice deformation in UO2

V. L. Aksenov, Th Frauenheim, V. Sikora

Research output: Article


The magnetic phase transition in UO2 is studied by means of a group theoretical analysis and the admitted symmetry groups in the low temperature phase are determined. With the help of the neutron diffraction data of Faber and Lander a three-arm magnetic and crystallographic structure with two types of translational domains is found and a new interpretation of the experiment of Faber and Lander is given.
