Abstract

Young's modulus (E) and the sound velocity (v) of the alloy series $Fe_{80-x}Ni_xCr_{20}$ were measured using a vibrating reed technique for 14&les;x&les;30 in the temperature range 1.5-300 K. The measurement, done over a large range of x and T, made it possible to study and compare the elastic manifestation of various magnetic transitions in a single alloys series, from long-range antiferromagnet (AFM) to long-range ferromagnet (FM) through intermediate phases of spin glass (SG) and reentrant spin glass (RSG). The magnetic contributions to E and v is found to be qualitatively similar in FM and RSG alloys (both positive) and that it tends to zero as $x\rightarrow x_c$, where xc is the critical nickel concentration for the onset of ferromagnetism. In the spin glass $(x<x_c)$, the magnetic contribution is negative and shows a minimum near the spin-glass transition. E has also been measured in an applied field H(=0.02 T) as a function of temperature $(T<T_c)$ to study the contribution of magnetic domains to E in alloys with ferromagnetic and reentrant spin-glass transitions. It is found that in RSG alloys, the domain-related contribution to E vanishes below the reentrant transition
