  Title Elucidating the lack of magnetic order in the heavy-fermion CeCu2Mg Type Journal Article
  Year 2017 Publication Physical Review B Abbreviated Journal Phys. Rev. B

  Abstract Magnetic, transport, and thermal properties of CeCu2Mg are investigated to elucidate the lack of magnetic order in this heavy-fermion compound with a specific heat value, Cmag/T|T→0≈1.2 J/mol K2 and robust effective magnetic moments (μeff≈2.46μB). The lack of magnetic order is attributed to magnetic frustration favored by the hexagonal configuration of the Ce sublattice. In fact, the effect of magnetic field on Cmag/T and residual resistivity ρ0 does not correspond to that of a Fermi liquid (FL) because a broad anomaly appears at Tmax≈1.2 K in Cmag(T)/T, without changing its position up to μ0H=7.5 T. However, the flattening of Cmag/T|T→0 and its magnetic susceptibility χT→0, together with the T2 dependence of ρ(T), reveal a FL behavior for T≤2 K which is also supported by Wilson and Kadowaki-Woods ratios. The unusual coexistence of FL and frustration phenomena can be understood by placing paramagnetic CeCu2Mg in an intermediate section of a frustration-Kondo model. The entropy, Smag, reaches 0.87Rln6 at T≃100 K, with a tendency to approach the expected value Smag=Rln6 of the J=5/2 ground state of Ce3+.
