Abstract

"Observations of the monotonic magnetostriction of cadmium at 4.2 K and in fields of 65 kilogauss have been made. The angular dependence of an extremal point (Hm) in the monotonic magnetostriction is found to follow inverse cosine behavior. The magnitude of Hm (27 kG) for fields parallel to [0001] is in fair agreement with the onset of γ1/3 from the breakdown of the trifoliate orbit, γ. The range of observation of hm coincides with the reported range of the trifoliate orbit. A "klink" in the monotonic magnetostriction is demonstrated. The "klink" field, Hk, is constant in value at 23 kilogauss to 60° from the c axis in a {101̄0} plane"--Abstract, page ii.
