Abstract

The magnetic properties of two compositions of random solutions in the TlCu2-xFexSe2 system with x = 0.2 and 0.45 have been investigated by superconducting quantum interference device magnetometry. The crystal structure is of a layer type and ordering due to the iron atoms occurs at low temperatures, with T-c = 85 K for x = 0.2 and T-c = 130 K for x = 0.45. The samples were highly textured crystals and the magnetic moments of both compositions were found to align along the c axis of the structure. The saturation moments were found to be 1.5 mu(B)/Fe x = 0.2 and 0.66 mu(B)/Fe for x = 0.45. (c) 2005 American Institute of Physics.
