In a previous work , a large magnetic anisotropy was found as a preliminary result of the formation of electrochemically deposited Fe93P7 alloy. Mössbauer spectroscopy was used in order to get information about the magnetic anisotropy of electrochemically prepared Fe-P and Fe-Ni-P amorphous alloys. The Mössbauer spectra and the hyperfine field distributions of the samples show that Fe-Ni-P and Fe-P electrodeposited amorphous materials can be prepared in a reproducible way from a point of view of short range ordering which is strongly dependent on the chemical composition determined by preparation conditions. The average magnetization directions in the samples were determined from the transmission spectra measured in a normal and two tilted geometries by two types of evaluation methods [2,3]. We have found that the small spread model of the domain structure better describes the experimental results. The obtained data reflect the prevailing anomalous magnetization orientation in these electrodeposited amorphous alloys.
