Title

Magnetic Structure of DyCo₃

Abstract

Powder neutron diffraction measurements have been carried out on the intermetallic compound DyCo//3 at 4 and 295 K. A modified Rietveld profile refinement program was used to fit the neutron data. It was found that a non-colinear magnetic structure model, coplanar in the a-c plane, gives a satisfactory fit to the data obtained at 4 and 295 K. At 4K, the cobalt moments on the three crystallography non-equivalent sites lie at 211. 0 degree to the c-axis; the dysprosium moments on the two non-equivalent sites are parallel at 36. 9 degree to the c-axis and in the opposite direction to that of the cobalt moments.
