Abstract : 2THE UNIT CELL DIMENSIONS, DENSITIES AND MAGNETIC SUSCEPTIBILITIES OF THE TETRAGONAL PtMn phase with the CuAu I type structure have been studied as a function of composition. With increasing platinum content the a and c axes go respectively through a maximum and minimum close to the equiatomic composition. This behaviour can be attributed to geometrical requirements considering the relative sizes of Pt and Mn atoms. The solid solution is substitutional. (Author)
