Abstract

We compare electrical resistance noise in commensurate and incommensurate phases of the spin-density wave (SDW) in Cr and dilute CrMn alloys. The commensurate phase gives much less polarization fluctuation noise than the incommensurate phase. The incommensurability of the SDW and the lattice in Cr may affect the SDW dynamics through the existence of weak planes in which the induced orbital moment contribution to the SDW is close to zero.
