Abstract

The magnetization of ErCu2 has been measured in high magnetic fields up to 45T. Metamagnetic transitions are found at 16.5, 0.7 and 13T for the field applied along the a-, b- and c-axis, respectively. The sharp metamagnetic transition for H∥b is due to the antiferromagnetic ordering, while the other two metamagnetic transitions originate from the crossover of the crystalline-electric-field energy levels of the 4f electrons.
