### Summary of "An evidence of local structural disorder across spin-reorientation transition in DyFeO3 : An Extended X-ray Absorption Fine structure (EXAFS) study."

The present work is aimed at exploring the local atomic structure modifications related to the spin reorientation transition (SRT) in DyFeO$_3$ orthoferrite exploiting x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) spectroscopy. For this purpose we studied by XAFS the evolution of the local atomic structure around Fe and Dy as function of temperature (10-300 K) in a DyFeO$_3$ sample having the SRT around 50-100K. For sake of comparison we studied a YFeO$_3$ sample having no SRT. The analysis of the extended region (EXAFS) has revealed an anomalous trend of Fe-O nearest neighbour distribution in DFO revealing i) a weak but significant compression with increasing temperature above the SRT and ii) a peculiar behavior of mean square relative displacement (MSRD) [$\sigma^2$] of Fe-O bonds showing an additional static contribution in the low temperature region, below the SRT. These effects are absent in the YFO sample supporting these anomalies related to the SRT. Interestingly the analysis of Dy $L_3$-edge data also reveal anomalies in the Dy-O neighbour distribution associated to the SRT, pointing out a role of magnetic \emph{Re} ions across $\mathrm{T_{SRT,Fe}}$. These results point out micro-structural modification at both Fe and Dy sites associated to the magnetic transitions in DFO, it can be stated in general terms that such local distortions across $\mathrm{Fe^{3+}}$ and magnetic \emph{Re}$^{3+}$ may be present in other orthoferrites exhibiting multiferroic nature.

## Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique for detecting short-lived reactive FREE RADICALS in biological systems by providing a nitrone or nitrose compound for an addition reaction to occur which produces an ELECTRON SPIN RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY-detectable aminoxyl radical. In spin trapping, the compound trapping the radical is called the spin trap and the addition product of the radical is identified as the spin adduct. (Free Rad Res Comm 1990;9(3-6):163)

Molecules which contain an atom or a group of atoms exhibiting an unpaired electron spin that can be detected by electron spin resonance spectroscopy and can be bonded to another molecule. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Chemical and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.
