Abstract

We report on the magnetic and magneto-optical properties of the intermetallic alloys Mn 5 (Ge 1-x M x ) 3 , where M=Sn, Pb. Generally, these alloys were ordered ferromagnetically at T≥300 K for x<0.3. The structure of Mn 5 (Ge 1-x Sn x ) 3 remains in the hexagonal Mn 5 Si 3 (hP16) phase up to x=0.25 and then changes to Ni 2 In (hP6) as x approaches 1. The magnetization and Curie temperature of these alloys is largest for small x and reach a minimum value near x=0.5. The room temperature Polar Kerr rotation, however, increases from -0.06°at x=0 to maximum value of -0.12°at x=0.1 before decreasing toward zero for x≳0.3. The Mn 5 (Ge 1-x Pb x ) 3 samples show a Mn 5 Si 3 structure with ferromagnetic behavior for x≤0.3, and varying structure with rapidly decreasing magnetization above x=0.3. The magnetic behavior observed was complex for x≥0.3. The Kerr rotation of the Pb-doped alloys in the ferromagnetic region monotonically decreases from -0.06°to zero at x≊0.3.
