This paper is a brief review of recent measurements performed on EuxSr1−xs just below and above xc=0,51, i.e. within the ferromagnetic to spin glass crossover regime where quite interesting and novel effects are observed. Spin-glass freezing below xc is studied in the high-frequency region and in dependence on a magnetic field. Neutron-diffraction experiments measure the spin correlations directly and provide evidence for a re-entrant ferromagnetic phase boundary above xc, which can be explained in terms of random-field effects.
