We have performed an investigation of the nonlinear magnetic response in ruthenocuprates. A negative, diverging-like peak at the main magnetic transition TN in RuSr2RECu2O8 (RE = Gd, Y) indicates a possible canted antiferromagnetic order. Another well defined feature above TN points to a blocking of superparamagnetic particles through the T−3 dependence of the third harmonic at higher temperatures. Below TN a nondiverging peak appears, which is strongly affected by the addition of 10% of Cu ions in the RuO2 planes. In RuSr2RE2−xCexCu2O10 the main magnetic transition TM is accompanied by two characteristic temperatures in the third harmonic of the ac susceptibility, in agreement with recent studies from μSR and M¨ossbauer spectroscopy. We find that the spin-spin correlation temperature is the same in both families of ruthenocuprates.
