Abstract

Magnetic structures have been determined by netron diffraction for several compositions in the superconducting mixed ternary system Ho(Rh1-xIrx)4B4. Two features previously reported to occur in the heat capacity for some compositions are shown to correspond to successive magnetic transitions. For x=0.30 and 0.45, neutron diffraction peaks for the lowest temperature structure develop over a timescale of many hours. The results are discussed in terms of magnetic frustration.
