We studied the magnetic properties in Ce3Rh2Ge 2 polycrystalline samples using magnetization and AC susceptibility measurements. Below 7 K, where the long-range antiferromagnetic ordering occurs, the magnetization shows a metamagnetic-like jump at 3 T, and exhibits several small wriggles between 3 and 11 T. In AC susceptibility, except the sharp peak at 7 K we observed an additional small peak at 4 and 11 K in low applied fields, respectively. These behaviors indicate the complex magnetic structure of Ce3Rh2Ge2 at low temperatures.
