ABSTRACT The s-d model of disordered binary alloy with the Hubbard electron interaction is considered in the paper. The dependence of the local magnetic moment on the number of nonmagnetic atoms in the nearest neighborhood is received as a result of the solution of the self-consistent equation for the local magnetic moment. It is shown that the model proposed describes qualitatively the experimental data on the disordered binary substitution alloys of the metal-metalloid type and justifies the possibility of the phenomenological description of the local magnetic moments by modified Jaccarino-Walker models.

    ABSTRACT: The Fe-Al systems in the concentration range from 29 to 44 at. % Al are investigated in terms of the density functional theory. It is shown that, in the system under consideration, there can exist three magnetic states with close energies. Two of these three magnetic states have collinear magnetic moments (the ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic states), and the third is a spin-spiral state. In collinear magnetic structures, the local magnetic moments are determined by the nearest chemical environment and, in the antiferromagnetic state, the iron atoms surrounded by a large number of aluminum atoms in their environment have a negative magnetic moment. The results obtained substantiate the applicability of modified models of the Jaccarino-Walker type for the interpretation of the experimental data obtained for Fe-Al alloys. The results of the calculations also indicate a significant role of Stoner excitations in the formation of magnetic order in these alloys.

    ABSTRACT: The transverse magnetoresistance and the Hall effect of Fe(100 -x)Al(x) ordered alloys with x = 26.5-34.1 at. % are studied at temperatures of 77 and 295 K. No saturation is found in the field dependences up to 17 kOe. The magnetoresistance is negative, depends nonmonotonically on the Al concentration, and reaches a maximum vertical bar Delta R/R vertical bar = 1.6% in the concentration range from 28 to 30 at. %. The coefficient of the anomalous Hall effect depends nonlinearly on the Al concentration and resistivity: it increases to a lesser extent as compared to the resistivity at x = 26-30 at. % and decreases with increasing resistivity at x > 30 at. %. An explanation is proposed for the observed anomalies in the magnetotransport properties in the framework of the model developed for the inhomogeneous magnetic microstructure of the Fe(100 -x)Al(x) ordered alloys.

    ABSTRACT: Results of Mössbauer and magnetic studies of partially ordered alloys Fe100 − x Al x (25 x < 35 at %) are discussed depending on the temperature and applied magnetic field. Two variants of the interpretation of the temperature behavior of magnetization and average hyperfine magnetic field at 57Fe nuclei in the model of a collinear magnet with magnetic inhomogeneities of a nanometer range are suggested. In the first variant, the existence of clusters with magnetic moments oriented parallel and antiparallel to the total magnetization is assumed. Temperature anomalies, such as the nonmonotonic dependence of magnetization and hyperfine magnetic field in the temperature range of 100–200 K, are explained at a qualitative level by the stabilization of relaxation phenomena in clusters due to Stoner-type spin excitations. The second variant is based on the assumption of a change in the orientation of spins antiparallel to the magnetization with increasing temperature.
