Very thin chromium-rich Cr-Mn alloy films were prepared in situ in a high-vacuum torque magnetometer and their magnetic moments were measured as a function of field at room temperature. It was found that the susceptibility of most of the alloys with 15 at. % Mn was close to zero, whereas alloys with a higher Mn concentration were paramagnetic, with susceptibility values larger than those found for bulk manganese.
