Ising metamagnet under staggered field

  • Subinary Dasgupta
Short Communications


We report a Monte Carlo simulation of the layered Ising antiferromagnet under an external magnetic field. We show that under a staggered field, there occurs a phase transition from a metastable state which follows a Vogel-Fulcher law. For a staggered intrasublattice interaction a similar situation occurs.
