Abstract A recent study of CeTiGe identified this compound as a paramagnetic heavy Fermion system where the full J = 5/2 multiplet is involved in the formation of the ground state. Here we present a preliminary investigation of the dc-magnetization Mdc(H) and of the magnetoresistance ρ(H) of polycrystalline CeTiGe samples in applied magnetic fields up to μ0H = 14 T. The results reveal a pronounced metamagnetic transition at a critical field μ0Hc ≈ 13.5 T at low temperatures, with a step like increase in Mdc(H) of at least 0.6 μB/Ce. The metamagnetic transition leads to a strong decrease in ρ(H). A clear hysteresis in Mdc(H) and ρ(H) indicate that in CeTiGe these metamagnetic features correspond to a true thermodynamic, first order type transition in contrast to the critical behavior observed in the canonical system CeRu2Si2. Measurements at higher temperatures showed a continuous suppression of the metamagnetic transition with increasing T, which vanishes at T ∼ 30 K. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.

Title Effect of Quenched Disorder in the Entropy-Jump at the First-Order Vortex Phase Transition of Bi{2}Sr{2}CaCu{2}O{8 + \delta } Type Journal Article
Year 2015 Publication Journal of Low Temperature Physics Abbreviated Journal J. Low Temp. Phys.
Volume 179 Issue 1-2 Pages 28-34
Keywords High Tc superconductors; First order vortex phase transition; Quenched disorder
Abstract We study the effect of quenched disorder in the thermodynamic magnitudes entailed in the first-order vortex phase transition of the extremely layered Bi 2 Sr 2 CaCu 2 O 8+δ compound. We track the temperature-evolution of the enthalpy and the entropy jump at the vortex solidification transition by means of AC local magnetic measurements. Quenched disorder is introduced to the pristine samples by means of heavy-ion irradiation with Pb and Xe producing a random columnar-track pins distribution with different densities (matching field BΦ ). In contrast with previous magneto-optical reports, we find that the first-order phase transition persists for samples with BΦ up to 100 Gauss. For very low densities of quenched disorder (pristine samples), the evolution of the thermodynamic properties can be satisfactorily explained considering a negligible effect of pinning and only electromagnetic coupling between pancake vortices lying in adjacent CuO planes. This description is not satisfactory on increasing magnitude of quenched disorder.

Title First order magnetic transition and magnetoelastic effects in Sm2IrIn8 Type Journal Article
Year 2008 Publication Physica B Abbreviated Journal
Volume 403 Issue 5-9 Pages 1365-1367
Keywords First order magnetic phase transition; Magnetotrictive effects; CEF effects
Abstract We report measurements of temperature dependent heat capacity, thermal expansion and high resolution X-ray diffraction (XRD) taken on single crystals of Sm2IrIn8 intermetallic compound. This compound belongs to the RmMnIn3m+2n family (R=rare earth, m=1, 2, n=0, 1 and M=Rh, Ir and Co) which includes a number of heavy fermion superconductors for R=Ce. Particularly, Sm2IrIn8 is the only member of this family to present a first order magnetic phase transition (FOMT). Both thermal expansion and heat capacity data show very pronounced sharps peaks at View the MathML source consistent with an FOMT. The linear thermal-expansion coefficient is anisotropic and both c-axis and basal ab plane coefficients change discontinuously at 14.2 K. This change is negative for both direction in contrast to what was found for other members of family such as Ce2RhIn8 and CeRhIn5. The zero-field high resolution XRD data at 14.2 K shows no evidence for a tetragonal-to-orthorhombic structural phase transition. We discuss our results considering tetragonal crystalline field effects (CEF), quadupolar interactions, antiferromagnetic domains and magnetoelastic effects.
