Abstract: In order to elucidate the anomalous magnetic properties in the ferromagnetically ordered state of SmNi4Ga GdNi4Ga and TbNi4Ga, we have carried out a detailed study with magnetization and specific heat (SH) measurements. GdNi4Ga shows the possibility of a filled 3d band and a helical spin arrangement below the ordering temperature. TbNi4Ga shows a dominant crystal field effect resulting in a deviation of T-C from the de-Gennes scaling and possible Schottky anomalies in the SH. SmNi4Ga shows a large coercivity at low temperatures. A rough estimate of the domain wall thickness in SmNi4Ga gives a value of 8 angstrom. (C) 2007
