Abstract

Recently, a new formalism for the temperature dependence of the anisotropy of the paramagnetic spin susceptibility ofmetals has been developed. We apply this theory to paramagnetic metals HCP scandium and yttrium. Calculated results show the paramagnetic spin susceptibility along the c axis, ,yr. to be greater than that along the a axis, ,y. within the temperature rangeof0-3W Kfor bothmetals. These resultsaremnsistentwitheuperiment, when the Van Vleck orbital susceptibility is taken into account. Our results also suggest that the magnetic moments oftransition metal impurities in Sc and Y will align with the c axis.
