Title: Noncollinear spin structure in F e 3 + x C o 3 x T i 2 ( x = 0 , 2 , 3 ) from neutron diffraction

Abstract

Neutron powder diffraction has been used to investigate the spin structure of the hard-magnetic alloy Fe 3+xCo 3–xTi 2 (x = 0,2,3). The materials are produced by rapid quenching from the melt, they possess a hexagonal crystal structure, and they are nanocrystalline with crystallite sizes D of the order of 40 nm. Projections of the magnetic moment onto both the crystalline c axis and the basal plane were observed. The corresponding misalignment angle exhibits a nonlinear decrease with x, which we explain as a micromagnetic effect caused by Fe-Co site disorder. As a result, the underlying physics is a special kind of random-anisotropy magnetism that leads to the prediction of 1/ D 1/4 power-law dependence of the misalignment angle on the crystallite size.
