Abstract

By muon spin rotation we investigated the magnetic properties of a series of highly Na-doped NaxCoO2 single crystals with 0.78(1)≤x≤0.97(1). Our data provide evidence for an intrinsically inhomogeneous magnetic state which can be described in terms of hole-doping (Na vacancy)-induced magnetic clusters that percolate at 1−x0.04 until they yield a bulk magnetic state near x=0.78. Evidence for a strong (likely geometrical) frustration of the magnetic order is obtained from the anomalous doping dependence of the spin fluctuation rate (above the ordering temperature) which is strongly enhanced at x=0.78 as compared to x=0.97.
