In this study, the magnetic moment of Fe in FePd alloy system was increased through hydrogen absorption, as confirmed by the enhanced X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) signal of Fe. Hydrogen absorption and desorption hysteresis loop in the magnetic cercivity (Hc)-hydroge pressure(PH2 ) diagram clearly proposed that hydrogen was absorbed at PH2=100 mbar and desorbed at PH2=10-6 mbar in the FePd alloy film. The hydrogenation effect on magnetism of FePd alloy film could be eliminated by thermal effect. An elevated temperature (heating up 60 K) can recovered the magnetic behavior to the pristine situation before hydrogen absorption. The recovery of Hc is due to the competition between thermal activation and H-bonding, not caused by hydrogen desorption. These results clearly reveal the correlation between PH2, temperature and the magnetic properties, and provide a typical hydrogenation effect on magnetic properties for future applications.
