Ferromagnetism of Dilute Solutions of Cobalt in Palladium
Previously reported measurements of ferromagnetic transitions in solid solutions of the cobalt-palladium system cover the concentration range from 100 to 0.1 % Co.1 The most dilute sample was reported to have a Curie temperature of 7°K and the extrapolation of the T c vs. concentration curve seemed to indicate that a transition would occur for arbitrarily small concentrations of cobalt. The present work is an extension of these results in an attempt to determine whether there is a critical concentration below which ferromagnetism does not exist at T = 0.
