Spin reorientation in Er2Fe17-xMnx - Mössbauer effect study
The polycrystalline samples of Er2Fe17-xMnx compounds have been studied by57Fe Mossbauer spectroscopy in the temperature range between 4.2K and 200K. A reorientation of the easy axis of magnetization has been evidenced for compound with x=4 in the measurements on magnetically oriented powdered sample. Spin reorientation from the c-axis to the basal plane is observed when temperature is increased above 105K. © 1988 J.C. Baltzer AG, Scientific Publishing Company.
