Abstract

Epitaxial thin-films of DyxPr1-x alloys have been studied using neutron diffraction and magnetization measurements. The crystal structure changes from HCP to Sm type to DHCP as x decreases; each crystal phase has different magnetic behaviour. Surprisingly, long-range order is suppressed in the DHCP allays, a possible explanation is outlined. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
