Title: Spin reorientation and magnetoelastic properties of ferromagnetic T b 1 - x N d x C o 2 systems with a morphotropic phase boundary

The spin reorientation (SR) and magnetoelastic properties of pseudobinary ferromagnetic Tb 1–xNd xCo 2 (0 ≤ x ≤ 1.0) systems involving a morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) were studied by high-resolution synchrotron x-ray diffraction (XRD), magnetization, and magnetostriction measurements. The easy magnetization direction of the Laves phase lies along the < 111 > axis with x < 0.65, whereas it lies along the < 100 > axis for x > 0.65 below Curie temperature (TC). The temperature-dependent magnetization curves showed SR; this can be explained by a two-sublattice model. Based on the synchrotron (XRD) and magnetization measurements, the SR phase diagram for a MPB composition of Tb 0.35Nd 0.65Co 2 was obtained. Contrary to previously reported ferromagnetic systems involving MPB, the MPB composition of Tb 0.35Nd 0.65Co 2 exhibits a low saturation magnetization (MS), indicating a compensation of the Tb and Nd magnetic moments at MPB. The anisotropic magnetostriction (λS) first decreased until x = 0.8 and then continuously increased in the negative direction with further increase of Nd concentration. The decrease in magnetostriction can be attributed to the decrease of spontaneous magnetostriction λ 111 and increase of λ 100 with opposite sign to λ 111. In conclusion, this paper indicatesmore » an anomalous type of MPB in the ferromagnetic Tb 1–xNd xCo 2 system and provides an active way to design novel functional materials with exotic properties.« less
