Description: This photograph shows a crystal tetragonal lattice of GdCo2Ge2 grown by dissolving rare earth pieces in arc-melted CoGe flux at ˜1250°C, then slowly cooling down to ˜1100°C. This material has a tetragonal structure and crystals grow as tetragonal plates. Most members of the RCo2Ge2 series are antiferromagnetic with moderately high Neél temperatures and strong magnetic anisotropy.
