Title: Heat capacity, resistivity, and angular dependent magnetization studies of single crystal Nd 1 + ϵ Fe 4 B 4 for ϵ 1 7

Abstract

Advances in crystal growth have allowed for synthesis of large single crystals of Nd 1+ϵFe 4B 4, a well-known phase with a modulated structure. As a result we are able to report heat capacity and resistivity measurements on a single crystal Nd 1+ϵFe 4B 4 sample with a distribution of ϵ that skews towards the solubility limit of Nd near ϵ ≈ 17. Heat capacity measurements show evidence of crystal field splitting at temperatures higher than the long-range ferromagnetic Curie temperature. Heat capacity, resistivity, and magnetization measurements all confirm a Curie temperature of 7 K which is lower than previously reported values in the Nd 1+ϵFe 4B 4 system. Here, we also perform measurements of the angular dependence of the magnetization and discover behavior associated with the magnetic anisotropy that is inconsistent with the simple description previously proposed.
