The magnetization curves of U6Fe were measured at several constant temperatures by a SQUID magnetometer. The lower critical field Hc1 was determined on the basis of Bean's model. Hc1 follows a 1-( T/ TC)4 dependence and its extrapolated value at T=0 is 92 Gauss. Hc1 is three orders of magnitude smaller than Hc2.
