Magnetic Neutron Scattering from the Rare-Earth Intermetallic Compound System R3Pd20Si6 (R = Rare Earth)
The low-temperature magnetic properties of the rare-earth intermetallic compound system R3Pd20Si6 (R = rare earth) were studied by elastic and inelastic neutron scattering. The compounds show due to the two rare-earth sublattices built from the 4a and 8c sites in the cubic crystal structure (space group Fm-3m) successive magnetic ordering with two different propagation vectors. In this report, we give an overview of the results obtained for the magnetic structures and the crystalline electric fields in the 3-20-6-system.
