Abstract

Neutron diffraction measurements of triangular lattice CsCuCl3 have been performed in a pulsed high magnetic field up to 14T. For an applied field parallel to the c-axis and below Bc = 10T at 7 K, Bragg reflection is observed at (1/3 1/3 0.085) showing a long period helical spin alignment along the c-axis and a triangular umbrella-like structure in the c-plane. The intensity of this reflection drastically changes at Bc and a new reflection at (1/3 1/3 0) appears. These results well explain a new type of magnetic phase transition which cannot be understood by the classical theory. When B is perpendicular to the c-axis more complicated results are observed.
