Speech Title: Structure, Magnetic and Thermodynamic Properties of Heterometallic Ludwigites: Cu2GaBO5 and Cu2AlBO5

Abstract: Aims: These considerations motivated our present study to reveal the details and explain the mechanism of the field-driven destruction of long-range magnetic order in favor of a spin-glass-like state in copper ludwigites.
Methods: The magnetization M of single crystalline samples were measured on the PPMS-9 device within a temperature range 2KResults: Here we presented the investigations of single crystals of Cu2GaBO5 and Cu2AlBO5 oxyborates with ludwigite. The distinctive features of the investigated structures are the selective distribution of Cu, Ga and Al cations. The magnetic properties of the investigated homomagnetic copper ludwigites are discussed in comparison with known heterometallic bimagnetic ludwigites.
Conclusions: The analysis of the phonon contribution to the specific heat was performed, that allowed to separate the magnetic contribution to the specific heat for both compounds.
