Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The U-Fe-M, M = Al, Mo and Si, phase diagrams around UFexM12-x compositions were investigated in order to find congruent melting compounds with ThMn12-type structure. This structure was confirmed in all cases by single crystal X-ray diffraction and lattice parameters and occupation factors were calculated. Magnetisation measurements performed on single crystals and polycrystalline samples are reported.
