Abstract

We report the structural and magnetic properties of GdFe2-xTix alloys, where x=0, 0.05, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20, 0.30. X-ray diffraction shows that these compounds form the cubic Cu2Mg type structure. The lattice parameter (a) and the unit cell volume (V) are found to increase with increasing Ti concentration. Magnetization measurements using a SQUID magnetometer show that all samples studied are magnetically ordered. We find that the saturation magnetization increases with x at room temperature and at 5 K. This is due to the replacement of magnetic iron by non-magnetic titanium which decreases the Fe sublattice moment.
