The fundamental magnetic interactions of Pr2Fe17 are studied by inelastic neutron scattering and anisotropy field measurements. Data analysis confirms the presence of three magnetically inequivalent sites, and reveals an exceptionally large value of the exchange field. The unexpected importance of J-mixing effects in the description of the ground-state properties of Pr2Fe17 is shown, and possible applications of related compounds are envisaged.

    The crystals of M1 – xRxF2 + x (where M = Ca, Ba, Cd and R is a rare earth element, Ga, or In) are susceptible to phase separation on a nanometer scale (nanostructurization), which determines to a considerable degree the properties of these materials. The patterns of electron diffraction...

    The level density and radiative strength function for 146,147Sm and 163,164Dy have been extracted from primary γ spectra using the Oslo method. As one approaches the closed N = 82 neutron shell, the structures in the level density become more pronounced due to shell effects. The experimental...

    Electron-spin-resonance (ESR) measurements were utilized as a microscopic probe to gain more information about the magnetic transition in the REB50 compounds. A gadolinium phase (Gd3+=8S7/2) was synthesized and used for this measurement. GdB50 will not form due to the large size of gadolinium,...

    Lanthanide metals are a particular class of magnetic materials in which the magnetic moments are carried mainly by the localized electrons of the 4f shell. They are frequently found in technically relevant systems, to achieve, e.g., high magnetic anisotropy. Magneto-optical methods in the X-ray...
