A. 2020-09-22T07:51:23Z Robinson, Jason W. A. NdNi<sub>5</sub> is an intermetallic compound with a bulk Curie temperature (T<sub>Curie</sub>) of 6–13 K. While existing studies have focused on NdNi<sub>5</sub> crystals, amorphous thin-films of NdNi<sub>5</sub> are potentially important since they would be magnetically soft without magnetocrystalline anisotropy, meaning that small external magnetic fields NdNi<sub>5</sub> thin-films with a thickness in the 5–200 nm range, deposited by DC magnetron sputtering onto Si(100). Films are amorphous with a weak temperature-dependent resistivity with values ranging between 150 and 300 μΩ cm. By means of noise spectroscopy, by analyzing the time-dependence of fluctuation-induced voltages, it is found that at low temperatures the resistance fluctuations are due to the Kondo effect. Volume magnetometry indicates T<sub>Curie</sub> =70 K with a magnetic coercive field of 30 mT at 5 K for a 125-nm-thick film. The results are promising for the development of Ferromagnet(F)/Superconductor(S)/Ferromagnet(F) pseudo spin-valve devices based on amorphous NdNi<sub>5</sub> thin films.
