### In science:

FeSi and CoSi are nonmagnetic, the latter being a diamagnetic semi-metal8 .
Interesting magnetic properties of Fe$_{1-x}$Co$_x$Si alloys
In the magnetic ﬁeld regime 10 < H < 13.5 kOe the local fundamental diamagnetic moment displays a very narrow diamagnetic step, with a temperature width of the same size as the zero dc-magnetic ﬁeld transition.
Peak effect in single crystal MgB$_2$ superconductor for ${\bf H}\parallel c$-axis
Finally, for H < 10 kOe the diamagnetic step is transformed to a gradual transition.
