Abstract

We have previously reported on the temperature and magnetic field dependence of the magnetic susceptibility of thin Pd1-xMnx alloy films. Extensive new measurements on sputtered films show that a commercial quality sputtering process produces a film with the same dependence of Curie temperature on x as previously reported for bulk samples of the same material. These measurements and parameters from the Renormalization Group theory for a Heisenberg ferromagnet, yield an estimate for Tc of 1.16 ± 0.01 K when x - 0.004, consistent with previously reported bulk results.
