Abstract

The influence of local moment magnetism on the boron isotope effect of was studied on single crystals of . Values of the partial isotope effect exponent of and were obtained based on two different criteria applied to extract . No significant change in the partial isotope effect exponent compared to the ones obtained for was observed. Based on this result, we conclude that pair-breaking due to the Er local magnetic moment appears to have no detectable influence on boron isotope effect of T-c.
