The magnetization of hydrogen-doped (Zr68Fe32)1-xHx metallic glasses has been measured in the temperature range 1.7–100 K for various dopant concentrations. For hydrogen concentrations x<0.1 the samples are paramagnetic with magnetic susceptibilities that are only weakly temperature dependent down to about 35 K, below which a slight increase can be observed. For larger hydrogen concentrations the magnetic susceptibilities become strongly temperature dependent (and show Curie-Weiss behavior). It is found that χ(100 K) increases upon hydrogenation. This is explained by an increase in the contribution of the Fe3d-electronic states to the density of states at the Fermi level, due to Zr-H bond formation, which leads to an enhancement of spin fluctuations and the formation of magnetic moments on the Fe-atom site at hydrogen concentrations x>0.1. The form and magnitude of the observed temperature dependence of the magnetic susceptibility are well accounted for by the sum of the Curie-Weiss term and quantum corrections to the susceptibility.
