Abstract

The electronic properties of Eu2.75C60 are studied using magnetic susceptibility and electron spin resonance (ESR) from 2 to 300 K. Both the magnetic susceptibility and the ESR parameters clearly show an anomaly around the valence transition temperature, TV = 70 K. The magnetic susceptibility shows weak temperature dependence above TV, while it changes drastically to Curie-Weiss behavior below TV. The low-temperature susceptibility can be reproduced by assuming the moment of free Eu2+ ions. This result reveals that Eu2.75C60 changes from the intermediate valence state to the divalent state below T V. Although ESR signals above TV should be attributed to conduction electrons, the ESR intensity below TV follows the Curie-Weiss law with a distinct increase in the g-factor. This should be associated with a strong localization of π electrons. We also found that, below ∼17 K, the isothermal magnetization exhibits a weak hysteresis and thermoremanent magnetization appears. These results suggest that valence-ordered Eu2.75C60 undergoes antiferromagnetic ordering with a weak ferromagnetic component at the Néel temperature, TN = 17 K.
