Magnetic Properties of Hydrogen-Included TiZrNiPd Quasicrystals
Abstract:Quasicrystals prepared by rapid quenching of Pd-added TiZrNi ingots were hydrogenated, and effects of hydrogen for magnetic properties were compared with the unhydrogenated ones under magnetic fields from − 10000 to 10000 Oe. The magnetization values obtained from vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) were analyzed with the combination of powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) data. While its contribution is larger than that of Pd, hydrogen decreases the magnetic moments of both Pd-doped and undoped quasicrystals. As increasing the amount of absorbed hydrogen which is represented by H/M (hydrogen to host metal atom ratio) values from 0 to 1.19, the magnetization values of Ti53Zr27Ni20 quasicrystals measured at 10000 Oe significantly decreased from 0.301 to 0.212 emu/g. A careful analysis of XRD data demonstrated that the reduced interactions of magnetic dipole moments between Ni atoms, as the product of the expansion of the quasilattice constants after hydrogenation, are responsible for the decreased magnetization values in hydrogenated TiZrNiPd quasicrystal samples.
