Clusterization Phenomena and Magnetic Phase Transitions in Rare Earth Intermetallics

Abstract:

Article Preview

Two cases of anomalous phase transitions in Ce intermetallics are presented. In CeIn2 multiple signatures of a first order paramagnetic-ferromagnetic transition at 22 K have been experimentally detected. We discuss possible mechanisms for such behaviour and the new studies in the La1-xCexIn2 series. In the he case of CeNi1-xCux the low temperature ferromagnetic long range order appears owing to a magnetic cluster percolation process, from a cluster glass state established above the ferromagnetic state.
