Magnetic Properties of TbCo2Si2 and TbCo2Ge2
Intermetallic compounds of the general formula RM2X2 (where R is rare earth or actinide metal, M is a transition 3d or 4d metal, and X is Ge or Si) have become a subject of intensive investigations1−6 in recent years. They crystallize in the body-centered tetragonal structure (space group I4/mmm) with R, M and X atoms occupying the 2(a), 4(d) and 4(e) positions. The structure consists of atomic layers perpendicular to the c-axis, stacked with the sequence R-X-M-X-R.
