Author(s) from Durham


We report the results of a muon spin rotation study on electron-doped chromium sulfides, Cr2S3−x, with 0⩽x⩽0.08. Two muon-spin precession frequencies are observed in each sample, corresponding to two distinct stopping sites. We show that even a small amount of electron doping, induced by sulfur deficiency, causes a drastic change in the magnetic properties.
