Effects of temperature and pressure on magnetic, elastic, structural, and thermal properties of Tb5Si2Ge2 have been studied by means of macroscopic (thermal expansion and magnetization) and microscopic (neutron powder diffraction) techniques. We present evidence that the high-temperature second-order ferromagnetic transition can be coupled with the(More)
In Ni-Mn-Ga ferromagnetic shape memory alloys, Co-doping plays a major role in determining a peculiar phase diagram where, besides a change in the critical temperatures, a change of number, order and nature of phase transitions (e.g., from ferromagnetic to paramagnetic or from paramagnetic to ferromagnetic, on heating) can be obtained, together with a(More)
A short description of basic types of high pressure apparatuses is presented in view of their application in a research in the biosciences. General tendencies in an evolution of characteristic inter-atomic bonds and their changes under high pressure are shortly reviewed. A complex behaviour of organic macromolecular compounds under pressure is demonstrated(More)
The pressure dependence of the saturation magnetization and Curie temperature was studied in melt-spun Fe60Mn20B20, Fe56Mn24B20 and Fe75B25 amorphous alloys up to 0.9 GPa, corresponding to volume changes up to 0.45%. In addition, in situ high-pressure (up to 40 GPa) x-ray diffraction was performed to determine the compressibility of the latter two alloys.(More)
In this Letter we present direct observation of the Fe helimagnetism in an Y2Fe17 single crystal under pressure. Combined neutron diffraction and magnetization measurements under pressure showed that the collinear ferromagnetic phase of Y2Fe17 is substituted by the pressure induced helical incommensurate phases. The complex pressure-temperature-field(More)
The giant magnetocaloric compound Gd5Ge4 is the only member of the Gd5(SixGe1-x)4 family where three-dimensional exchange interactions between two-dimensional correlated layers of the crystallographic structure are so weak that spontaneous ferromagnetism does not set in at any temperature. In this Letter we explore the possibility to reach the ferromagnetic(More)
We present the results of magnetization and AC susceptibility measurements performed on ferrimagnetic Mn(3)(2+)[Cr(III)(CN)(6)](2)·12H(2)O and ferromagnetic Ni(3)(2+)[Cr(III)(CN)(6)](2)·12H(2)O systems under pressures up to 0.9 GPa in a commercial SQUID magnetometer. The magnetization process is affected by pressure: magnetization saturates at higher(More)
An experimental study of correlations between the magnetovolume effects and the type of magnetic ordering in the Lu(2)Fe(17)-based intermetallics is shown for the example of variation of the interatomic distances by means of substitution of Ce for Lu, hydrogenation and subsequent high-pressure investigation of both the initial (Lu(0.8)Ce(0.2))(2)Fe(17) and(More)
Pressure effects on the stability of magnetic phases in La(1.4)Sr(1.6)Mn(2)O(7) have been studied using magnetization measurements and neutron diffraction. At ambient conditions this material is a quasi-two-dimensional ferromagnet. On cooling it becomes ordered three dimensionally: at 90 K La(1.4)Sr(1.6)Mn(2)O(7) it becomes an antiferromagnet, and at 65 K(More)
A system for direct measurements of the magneto-caloric effect (MCE) exploits a rapid transport of a sample into or from magnetic field in permanent Halbach-type (1 T) or superconducting (4.7 T) magnets. Time dependence of induced changes of the sample temperature, ΔT(t), is detected directly by the differential Cu-Constantan-Cu micro-thermocouples with(More)
