Title

An Ac Magnetic Susceptibility Study of Er(Fe₁₋ₓCoₓ)₃

Abstract

AC magnetic susceptibility measurements have been performed on the Er(Fe1-xCox)3 compounds with x = 0.0, 0.24, 0.44, 0.61 and 1.0. This system shows a competition between the different anisotropies of Fe and Co and the two crystallographically different Er sites. The magnetic phase diagram, previously proposed down to 10 K based on magnetization and neutron diffraction measurements, has been confirmed by magnetic susceptibility experiments. At lower temperatures our results suggest the possible existence of a new spin reorientation (SR) transition at high cobalt content. © 1995.
