Abstract: The magnetic superconductor Ru0.9Sr2YCu2.1O7.9 (Ru-1212Y) has been investigated using neutron diffraction under variable temperature and magnetic field. With the complementary information from magnetization measurements, we propose a magnetic phase diagram T-H for the Ru-1212 system. Uniaxial antiferromagnetic (AFM) order of 1.2 mu(B)/Ru atoms with moments parallel to the c-axis is found below the magnetic transition temperature at similar to 140 K in the absence of magnetic field. In addition, ferromagnetism (FM) in the ab-plane develops below similar to 120 K, but is suppressed at lower temperature by superconducting correlations. Externally applied magnetic fields cause Ru-moments to realign from the c-axis to the ab-plane, i.e. along the < 1, 1, 0 > direction, and induce ferromagnetism in the plane with similar to 1 mu(B) at 60 kOe. These observations of the weak ferromagnetism suppressed by superconductivity and the field-induced metamagnetic transition between AFM and FM demonstrate not only competing orders of superconductivity and magnetism, but also suggest a certain vortex dynamics contributing to these magnetic transitions. © 2013, Springer.
