SPIN-WAVES IN THE ONE-SPIN-SLIP PHASE OF HOLMIUM.
541 - 546.
The dispersion relationship for spin waves propagating the c-axis in the one-spin-slip phase of holmium at 19.5 K has been measured using a neutron triple-axis spectrometer. A gap in the spin-wave spectrum of approximately 0.6 meV is resolved clearly at a reduced wave vector transfer with respect to the magnetic unit cell of q(m) = (5/11)c*, and the presence of a second gap at q(m) = (6/11)c* is inferred from the anomalous behaviour of the intrinsic spin-wave width. Our results are discussed in the light of recent calculations of the spin waves in holmium.
