Abstract: Taking profit that the ternary indides Ce2+ÎµPd2-ÎµIn form two branches of solid solutions allowing to access to ferromagnetic (FM, Îµ > 0) or anti-ferromagnetic (AFM, Îµ < 0) ground states depending on the relative Ce/Pd concentration 'Îµ' , we have tested the possibility of a Shastry-Sutherland phase formation by electron doping the trivalent In lattice with tetravalent Sn. Starting from the AFM, Îµ < 0 side provides the lowest electron concentration conditions increasing the sensitivity to electron doping. For such a purpose low temperature thermal and magnetic properties were investigated on Ce2+ÎµPd2-ÎµIn1-xSnx alloys within the 0 â‰¤ x â‰¤ 0.6 range of concentration.

Abstract: Exploiting the possibility to switch from antiferromagnetic (AFM) and ferromagnetic (FM) ground states (GSs) in out-stoichiometric branches of
Ce2Pd2In alloys, the stability of Shastry-Sutherland (ShSu) phase of
Ce2Pd2Sn as a function of Sn/In electron doping was studied. Magnetic and specific-heat measurements show that the Ce-rich compositions stabilize the FM-GS throughout the Sn/In-FM substitution, allowing to extend the formation of the ShSu phase up to its collapse in a tricritical point around ycr=0.5. On the other hand, this behavior is quite different from that reported in a recent investigation on the AFM branch where atomic disorder at intermediate Sn/In-AFM concentrations inhibits the formation of the ShSu phase.
