Resistivity of Paramagnetic Pd—Ni Alloys
In a recent article Harris and Zuckermann1 showed that a coherent potential approximation (CPA) analogy can be used to describe spin fluctuations in disordered transition metal alloys. In particular, the method was used to explain the nonlinear variation of the inverse spin susceptibility of paramagnetic Pd—Ni alloys with Ni concentration. A critical concentration of 2.3 at. % Ni was predicted for the occurrence of ferromagnetism, which agrees with the analysis of Tari and Coles.2
