Abstract

The AFMR spectra of the NdFe3(BO3)4 crystal of an incommensurate state are measured in ranges of frequencies 15–32.2 GHz, temperatures 2.17–10 K and fields H < Hsf. It is found that the incommensurability of the magnetic ordering in these ranges of parameters leads to an essential change of the resonant properties of the system. The frequency of the “usual” resonance remains finite up to the spin-flop transition field Hsf, and a new branch of excitations with unusual hysteresis properties arises. The dependences of resonant frequency on field and temperature are found in the above ranges of these parameters.
