    Abstract

    We have applied x-ray magnetic circular dichroism to investigate the field-induced ferromagnetism
    in Pd40Ni22.5Fe17.5P20 alloy. The experiment revealed that both Ni and Fe were in a divalent state and
    that the magnetic properties of the material were determined by the localized 3d electrons of the
    transition metals. No clear evidence of Ruderman–Kittel–Kasuya–Yosida-type interaction among
    magnetic clusters was observed. It is believed that the detailed balance of fundamental spin-orbit
    and exchange interactions as a function of temperature and applied magnetic field determine the
    different magnetic properties of the alloy.
