EPR STUDY OF Cr2Te3 ALLOY

I. Stefaniuk, M. Bester and M. Kuzma

Abstract

Cr2Te3 bulk samples were obtained by melting powdered Cr2Te3 at high temperatures (1300-1340 úC). Electron paramagnetic resonance experiments were carried out in an X-band (9.4 GHz) spectrometer in the 150-300K temperature range. There was a great difference between the EPR results of the bulk alloy samples and those obtained for the parent compound, powdered Cr2Te3. The transition to the ferromagnetic phase was determined at 212K. Another temperature value of a magnetic phase transition was observed near the room temperature, as well.
