Structural and magnetic properties of rapidly solidified (Ce0.2Fe0.8)1-xAl x ribbons determined by X-ray diffraction and Mössbauer spectrometry
(Ce0.2Fe0.8)1-xAl x (0 ≤x≤ 0.9) ribbons have been prepared by planar flow casting under an He atmosphere with a linear velocity of 29 m s-1. Analyses of the ribbons by X-ray diffraction and57Fe Mössbauer spectrometry in the temperature range 4–300 K show that all the ribbons are crystalline. With increasingx, the observed phases are Ce(Fe, Al)2, Ce2(Fe, Al)17, CeFe4+y,Al8-y and the single fcc aluminium phase. For the different phases, the line intensities of the Mössbauer spectra agree with previous results on the preferential substitution sites for aluminium. A coherent hyperfine parameters set was deduced from fitting spectra in the temperature range 4–300 K.
