Abstract. The magnetic susceptibility (MS) of single crystal Ge1-xSix (0 < x < 0.1) solid solutions was investigated. Considerable anomalous MS behavior was found. Theoretical estimations of paramagnetic and diamagnetic parts were made. Reconstruction of the band structure of these alloys results in peculiarities of MS as a function of the composition.

Keywords: band structure, magnetic susceptibility, Ge1-xSix, alloy.
