Title: Magnetism and incommensurate waves in Zr{sub 3}(Rh{sub 1-x}Pd{sub x}){sub 4}

Abstract

Unique properties of the Zr{sub 3}(Rh{sub (1-x)}Pd{sub x}){sub 4} alloy system are reported here. Contrary to most metallically bonded systems which are not quick to change magnetic behavior with alloy concentration, this system does. Pure Zr{sub 3}Rh{sub 4} and pure Zr{sub 3}Pd{sub 4} are each nonmagnetic, while in the limited range 0.02<x<0.08, there is a substantial increase in paramagnetism, attended by a similarly varying incommensurate density wave. At x=0.04 the system exhibits ferromagnetism and displays some superconductivity at x=0.06. The crystal structure involves disclination lines of Rh atoms, or channels, which are equivalent to those of the superconducting A15 structures and bear resemblances to those of the hard magnets.
