Magnetism of the Compounds in the Hf-Co Phase System
Magnetization M as a function of applied magnetic field H up to 50 kOe was measured at low temperature T = 5K, using an SQUID magnetometer, for HfCo2 and Hf2Co intermetallic compounds. Both samples showed paramagnetic behaviour with a weak ferromagnetic contribution due to impurities (0.01-0.001 wt%). The values of the mass susceptibilities χ were deduced from the measurements. In addition, calculations using full-potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) WIEN 97 programme package were done, in order to check their agreement with the experimental results.
