Abstract

For the first time the temperature dependence of the dynamic magnetic susceptibility of magnetic superconductor Dy0.6Y0.4Rh3.85Ru0.15B4 in the temperature range 2–50 K, as well as the field dependence of magnetization up to 6 T at fixed temperatures of 2, 11, 18, and 50 K have been studied. It was found that at ТFM = (21 ± 1) K a transition to the ferromagnetic state takes place and at Тc = (6.7 ± 1) K a transition to the superconducting state is observed, which coexists with the ferromagnetic phase in a wide temperature range of 2–6.7 K. It is suggested that a triplet mechanism of superconducting pairing is possible presented for Dy0.6Y0.4Rh3.85Ru0.15B4.

Key words: rare earth rhodium borides, ferromagnetism, superconductivity, triplet pairing.
