dc.description.abstractMetamagnetic transitions are analogs of a pressure-driven gas-liquid transition in water. In insulators, they are marked by a superlinear increase in the magnetization that occurs at a field strength set by the spin exchange interactions. Here we study topological metamagnets, in which the magnetization is itself a topological quantity and for which we find a single transition line for two materials with substantially different magnetic interactions: the spin ices Dy2Ti2O7 and Ho2Ti2O7. We study single crystals under magnetic field and stress applied along the [001] direction and show that this transition, of the Kasteleyn type, has a magnetization versus field curve with upward convexity and a distinctive asymmetric peak in the susceptibility. We also show that the dynamical response of Ho2Ti2O7 is sensitive to changes in the Ho3+ environment induced by compression along [001]. Uniaxial compression may open up experimental access to equilibrium properties of spin ice at lower temperatures.
