Abstract

The antiperovskite Mn3+xNi1-xN compounds have been synthesized and characterized by a variety of experimental techniques. After Mn doping at Ni site, both ferromagnetic characteristics and Invar-like effect were observed in the antiferromagnetic host material. The observed Invar-like effect were observed in the antiferromagnetic host material. The observed Invar-like behavior was assumed to be related to the characteristic magnetic structure induced by the doping stabilizes the special Γ5g antiferromagnetic phase with strong spin-lattice coupling that can be tuned to achieve Invar-like behavior. The magnetovolume effect (MVE)and significant correlation between spin and lattice were confirmed for Γ5g magnetic phase by the first-principles calculations. Moreover, Mn-3d electron were revealed to be the key factor for MVE from the calculations. Our study presents a new mechanism to precisely control the zero thermal expansion (ZTE) of a single compound by getting the specialΓ5g magnetic phase of Mn atoms.
