Pr0.8Y0.2Mn2Ge2 is found to exhibit four magnetic transitions on decreasing the temperature from the paramagnetic region: (i) paramagnetism to intralayer antiferromagnetism (AFl) at TN intra; (ii) AFl to canted ferromagnetism (Fmc) at TC inter; (iii) Fmc to conical magnetic ordering of the Mn sublattice (Fmi) at Tcc; and (iv) Fmi(Mn) to Fmi(Mn) F(Pr) at T C Pr. These changes in magnetic structure are discussed in terms of changes in the Mn-Mn separation distances caused by the unit cell contraction and by electronic effects due to replacement of 20 of Pr with Y. 2013 American Institute of Physics.
