Side-Jump Effect in Paramagnetic Amorphous Metals
MetadataShow full item record
A systematic study of the resistivity (rho), the Hall coefficients (R(H)), and the magnetic susceptibilities (chi) of the Zr-based paramagnetic amorphous alloys suggests a self-consistent explanation for the frequently observed positive values of R(H) that is based on. the side-jump effect. Measurements for chi, R(H), and rho of (Zr0.64Cu0.36)1-xAlx and chi for (Zr0.50Ni0.50)1-xAlx alloys are presented. The odd behavior of the Hall coefficients of these alloys and the anomalous positive Hall coefficients of paramagnetic Zr-based amorphous alloys can be accounted for in terms of the enhanced spin-orbit interaction, which produces the side-jump effect.
