Lattice and Magnetic Anisotropies in Uranium Intermetallic Compounds

Abstract:

Article Preview

Examples of UNiAlD2.1 and UCoGe illustrate that the soft crystallographic direction coincides quite generally with the shortest U-U links in U intermetallics. It leads to a simple rule, that the easy magnetization direction and the soft crystallographic direction (in the sense of highest compressibility under hydrostatic pressure) must be mutually orthogonal.
