An alloy of the immiscible constituents iron and silver was prepared by pulsed electrodeposition method from a single bath containing ferric nitrate, silver nitrate and sodium perchlorate. The surface morphology of the as deposited alloys was investigated by using field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) analysis while the crystal structure was examined by X-ray diffraction analysis. XRD analysis showed that alloy exhibits fcc structure. FESEM analysis depicted the formation of dendrites over the spherical particles. The vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) study unveiled that the Fe-Ag alloy deposits were ferromagnetic in nature and Curie temperature was found to be 585.4 ΟC.
