Crystal-Field Interactions in RPd_2Al_3 Intermetallics (R = Pr, Nd, Sm, and U)

Languages of publication
Magnetic and electronic properties of NdPd_2Al_3 have been nicely described with the Nd^{3+} ions within the crystal-field theory revealing that all Nd atoms equally contribute to the temperature dependence of the paramagnetic susceptibility and of the heat capacity with the λ-peak. We consistently described paramagnetic and magnetically-ordered state. The fine electronic structure of the Nd^{3+} ion nicely correlates with the electronic structure of the U^{3+} ion in UPd_2Al_3 giving strong evidence for the trivalent uranium state in the isostructural heavy-fermion superconductor UPd_2Al_3.
