We present electronic transport and magnetic properties of single crystals of semimetallic half-Heusler phase LuPdBi, having theoretically predicted band inversion requisite for nontrivial topological properties. The compound exhibits superconductivity below a critical temperature Tc = 1.8 K, with a zero-temperature upper critical field Bc2 ≈ 2.3 T.(More)
Motivated by the recent discovery of exotic superconductivity in YFe2Ge2 we undertook reinvestigation of formation and physical properties of yttrium-based 1:2:2 silicides. Here we report on syntheses and crystal structures of the YTE 2Si2 compounds with TE  =  Cr, Co, Ni, Rh, Pd and Pt, and their low-temperature physical properties measurements,(More)
A single crystal of the U-based ternary silicide U(2)IrSi(3) was investigated by means of magnetic, resistivity and heat-capacity measurements performed in wide ranges of temperature and external magnetic fields. The results hint at the formation of a non-trivial magnetic ground state in which ferromagnetic ordering coexists with spin-glass freezing.
The crystal structures and the physical (magnetic, electrical transport and thermodynamic) properties of the ternary compounds CeRhSi(2) and Ce(2)Rh(3)Si(5) (orthorhombic CeNiSi(2)- and U(2)Co(3)Si(5)-type structures, respectively) were studied over wide ranges of temperature and magnetic field strength. The results revealed that both materials are valence(More)
The ferromagnetic heavy fermion compound Ce3RhSi3 was studied by means of electrical resistivity, Hall effect, thermoelectric power and Nernst coefficient measurements. Below T ≈ 30 K, all the transport characteristics were found to behave anomalously as functions of temperature and magnetic field. In particular, the Hall and Nernst coefficients at low(More)
Longitudinal and transverse field muon spin rotation/relaxation measurements have been carried out on a polycrystalline sample of ThPt(4)Ge(12). The zero-field measurements in the longitudinal geometry do not reveal any signature of a spontaneous internal magnetic field below the superconducting transition temperature, indicating the preservation of(More)
The magnetic symmetry and structure of the non-Fermi liquid heavy fermion compound CeNiGa2 has been determined by neutron powder diffraction. The orthorhombic CeNiGa2 compound orders antiferromagnetically below 4.4(2) K at ambient pressure with a magnetic moment magnitude of μCe = 0.80(4) μB for moments aligned along the c-axis. The magnetic (Shubnikov)(More)
Single crystals of Ce2PdGa12 were studied by means of specific heat and electrical transport measurements, performed in wide ranges of temperature and magnetic field strength. The results corroborate the antiferromagnetic ordering reported in the literature, yet seem to exclude the heavy-fermion nature of the compound that has been previously suggested. The(More)
We observed the coexistence of superconductivity and antiferromagnetic order in the single-crystalline ternary pnictide HoPdBi, a plausible topological semimetal. The compound orders antiferromagnetically at TN = 1.9 K and exhibits superconductivity below Tc = 0.7 K, which was confirmed by magnetic, electrical transport and specific heat measurements. The(More)
Tm(3)Cu(4)Ge(4) crystallizes in the orthorhombic Gd(3)Cu(4)Ge(4)-type crystal structure (space group Immm) whereas Tm(3)Cu(4)Sn(4) crystallizes in a distorted variant of this structure (monoclinic space group C2/m). The compounds were studied by means of neutron diffraction, specific heat, electrical resistivity and magnetic measurements. Analysis of(More)
