By means of Conversion Electron Mössbauer Spectroscopy (CEMS) Fe clusters have been found on the surface of activated TiFe specimens. The magnetic moments of the Fe precipitates order ferromagnetically with a field of 328 KOe and are aligned parallel to the surface. The Fe precipitates are produced by the thermal treatment under hydrogen atmosphere and can be regarded as catalysts for the dissociation of the H2 molecules.
