Title

A Neutron Diffraction Study of the Atomic Ordering in Er(Fe1 - XCox)3

Abstract

Neutron diffraction studies of the intermetallic compounds ErFe2.28- Co0.72, ErFe1.68Co1.32, and ErFe1.16Co1.84, above the magnetic ordering temperatures, indicate that iron atoms preferentially occupy the 6c site, while cobalt atoms show a strong preference for the 3b site and a slight preference for the 18h site. The room-temperature pattern for ErFe1.16- Co1.84, below the Curie temperature, indicates a collinear arrangement of the magnetic moments along the c axis. A more complex, non-collinear, array of magnetic moments is indicated for ErFe2.28Co0.72. © 1989.
