Magnetism of Uranium Intermetallics
Languages of publication
In the present review first the magnetic properties of the actinide metals are presented with a special emphasis on the uranium. Then the reason for starting the research on the uranium compounds in Wrocław is given together with a brief description of the magnetic properties of the binary compounds. The comparison with the rare-earth ternaries illustrates the difficulties in interpretation of the physical measurements of the uranium intermetallics in which the uranium as well as the transition metal atoms contribute to the magnetic ordering. Further, we present the features which could indicate the true contribution of both partners. However, we also stress that some of the properties which seem to prove the magnetic order on the uranium atom could result from particular crystal or band structure.
