Landolt-Börnstein - Group III Condensed Matter Magnetostriction


This chapter discusses magnetostriction of the carbides R2Fe17Cx. The carbides R2Fe17Cx, like the parent compounds R2Fe17, undergo large positive spontaneous magnetostrictive deformations below T C. Temperature dependence of the lattice parameters a, c, and of the unit cell volume V for Tb2Fe17Cx, Tm2Fe17Cx and Y2Fe17Cxare shown. The basal-plane linear deformation λ a at 5 K increases with increasing C content for R = Y and Tb, whereas the uniaxial deformation λ c remains practically the same. Linear thermal expansion coefficients in the paramagnetic range in the basal plane, α a , and along the c axis, α c , volume thermal expansion coefficient α V in the paramagnetic range, spontaneous linear deformations in the basal plane, λ a , and along c axis, λ c , and spontaneous volume deformation ωs for R2Fe17Cxcompounds are tabulated. The temperature dependence of ωs follows the square of the magnetic moment of the Fe sublatice.
