Abstract.

The magnetic properties of the Zn2 FeV3O11 vanadate, characterized by a disordered distribution of diamagnetic Zn2 + and high-spin Fe3 + ions, are studied using magnetization and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) measurements. The dc susceptibility reveals antiferromagnetic interactions between Fe3 + spins with a Curie-Weiss temperature \(\Theta = -58(1)\) K, followed by a transition to a frozen, spin-glass-like state at low temperature T f \(\approx 2.55\) K, indicating an inhomogeneous magnetic ground state. The temperature variation of the EPR parameters confirms the antiferromagnetic coupling of Fe3 + spins at high temperatures, while a distinct divergence is observed at \(T\approx 55\) K. This behavior is attributed to the inherent magnetic inhomogeneity of the system due to antiferromagnetic spin clusters.
