Abstract

In this report, we prepared for the first time the orthorhombic Dy1−xHoxMnO3 single crystals with x = 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, and 0.4 using the flux technique. The post-growth processing and chemical and structural characterization of the synthesized samples were performed. Also, we examined the samples obtained by their magnetic properties and the magnetic anisotropy in wide ranges of temperatures and magnetic fields.
