Abstract

We report on the muon spin rotation/relaxation study of a pyrochlore oxide, Cd 2Os 2O 7, which exhibits a metal-insulator (MI) transition at T MI ≃ 225K without structural phase transition. It reveals strong spin fluctuation (≥10 8 s -1) below the MI transition, suggesting a predominant role of geometrical spin frustration amongst Os 5+ ions. Meanwhile, upon further cooling, an incommensurate spin density wave discontinuously develops below T SDW ≃ 150 K. These observations strongly suggest the occurrence of an anomalous magnetic transition and associated change in the local spin dynamics in undistorted pyrochlore antiferromagnet.
