Abstract: We have determined the magnetic structure of Nd 2 Al by neutron powder diffraction. This orthorhombic intermetallic compound orders ferromagnetically below 36 K with the Nd moments aligned along the b-axis. Even at 1.7 K, the larger of the two Nd moments is only 2.3(2) μ B , about 70% of the 'free-ion' value of 3.27 μ B . This reduction is a consequence of the substantial crystal-field effects at the Nd 3+ sites.(c) 2011 IOP Publishing LTD
