Abstract

Dielectric and magnetic phenomena in spin- and charge-frustrated system R Fe2 O4 (R is a rare-earth metal ion) are studied. An electronic model for charge, spin, and orbital degrees in a pair of triangular-lattice planes is derived. We analyze this model by utilizing the mean-field approximation and the Monte Carlo simulation in a finite size cluster. A threefold-type charge-ordered structure with charge imbalance between the planes is stabilized in finite temperatures. This polar charge order is reinforced by spin ordering of Fe ions. This magnetodielectric phenomenon is caused by spin frustration and charge-spin coupling in the exchange interaction. We show cross-correlation effect in magnetic- and electric-field responses. Oxygen-deficiency effect as an impurity effect in a frustrated charge-spin coupled system is also examined.
