    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Powdered MnAs has been investigated by neutron diffraction in a pressure cryostat, at hydrostatic pressures up to 13 kbar and temperatures down to 4.2 K. It has been found that in the orthorhombic MnP type structure, which under pressure is retained at low temperature, a spiral magnetic structure with propagation vector τa = 0.125X2πX a* at 12.6 kbar is formed.
