Abstract: We present here the results of magnetic measurements on Er 5Si3, a compound crystallizing in Mn5Si 3 type hexagonal structure. The magnetic susceptibility and isothermal magnetization data reveal that there is a field induced transition near the critical field of 10 kOe below TN. The low field state (ground state) is antiferromagnetic as inferred from the peak in magnetic susceptibility and linear magnetization behavior with field below 10 kOe. It is interesting to note that the paramagnetic Curie temperature is positive with magnitude nearly same as that of TN, suggesting the existence of a strong ferromagnetic component. The saturation magnetization attains a value of 7?B/Er at 1.8 K. � 2011 American Institute of Physics.
