Structure of Gd(5-x)HoxSi4 Solid Solutions
A new systematic study of the formation and structure of solid solutions Gd (5-x)HoxSi4 (x = 1.0-5.0) has been performed. By X-ray powder diffraction method, it was found that these compounds all crystallize in orthorhombic structure with space group Pnma and the cell parameters a, b, c and the volume of unit cell are correlated with the holmium content.
