Article Preview

We have measured spin and orbital magnetic form factors of Pd3Co for various reciprocal lattice points by the X-ray magnetic diffraction. Observed spin and orbital magnetic form factors are fitted by theoretical curves of the isolated atomic model under the dipole approximation. By the fitting analysis we have evaluated separately the spin and orbital component of the magnetic moment of Pd3Co alloy as 2.19 µB/f.u. and 0.83 µB/f.u., respectively. The total magnetic moment 3.02 µB/f.u. is comparable to the value of 2.93 µB/f.u. obtained by the magnetization measurement.
