    The magnetic ordering in HoxCe1-x alloys has been investigated by neutron diffraction and X-ray magnetic resonant scattering (XMRS). The DHCP alloys display a rich phase diagram, and highly unusual, diffuse neutron magnetic scattering is observed over the composition range 0.35 less than or equal to x less than or equal to 0.5. The diffuse intensity may be the magnetic response of the conduction band, and this interpretation is supported by the XMRS measurements, which show that there is hybridisation of the Ce 4f electron with the conduction electrons.
