We argue that key characteristics of the enigmatic transition at T0 = 17.5 K in URu2Si2 indicate that the hidden order is a density wave formed within a band of composite quasiparticles, whose detailed structure is determined by local physics. We expand on our proposal (with Mydosh) of the hidden order as incommensurate orbital antiferromagnetism and present experimental predictions to test our ideas. We then turn towards a microscopic description of orbital antiferromagnetism, exploring…

In order for the hyperfine fields to be observed as a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) linewidth, the order must be incommensurate, with the ordering vector determined so as to account for the ²⁹Si NMR linewsidth data quantitatively.
Itinerant spin excitations near the hidden order transition in URu2Si2
Evidence is presented that the itinerant excitations, like those in chromium, are due to Fermi surface nesting of hole and electron pockets; hence the hidden order phase probably originates from a Fermani surface instability.
Field-induced Fermi surface reconstruction and adiabatic continuity between antiferromagnetism and the hidden-order state in URu2Si2.
Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations reveal at high fields an abrupt reconstruction of the Fermi surface within the hidden-order (HO) phase of URu2Si2, suggesting an increase in the effective carrier density and suggesting that the field suppression of the HO state is ultimately related to destabilizing a gap in the spectrum of itinerant quasiparticles.
Visualizing the formation of the Kondo lattice and the hidden order in URu2Si2
It is found that, as the temperature is lowered, partial screening of the f electrons’ spins gives rise to a spatially modulated Kondo–Fano resonance that is maximal between the surface U atoms, suggesting that the two phenomena involve the same electronic states.
Fermi-surface instability at the |[lsquo]|hidden-order|[rsquo]| transition of URu2Si2
URu2Si2 is full of mystery. Despite having f-electrons, it is unclear whether heavy electrons are present in the ‘hidden order’ phase. Thanks to photoemission studies, itinerant heavy electrons have
Unveiling hidden multipolar orders with magnetostriction
It is theoretically proposed that magnetostriction provides a powerful and novel tool to directly detect higher-order multipolar symmetry breaking—such as the elusive octupolar order—by examining scaling behaviour of length change with respect to an applied magnetic field h.

Critical Theory of Non-Fermi Liquid Fixed Point in Multipolar Kondo Problem
When the ground state of a localized ion is a non-Kramers doublet, such localized ions may carry multipolar moments. For example, Pr$^{3+}$ ions in a cubic environment would possess quadrupolar and
Absence of true long-range orbital order in a two-leg Kondo ladder
We investigate, through the density-matrix renormalization group and the Lanczos technique, the possibility of a two-leg Kondo ladder present an incommensurate orbital order. Our results indicate a
Colloquium: Hidden order, superconductivity, and magnetism: The unsolved case of URu 2 Si 2
This Colloquium reviews the 25 year quest to understand the continuous (second-order), mean-field-like phase transition occurring at 17.5 K in ${\mathrm{URu}}_{2}{\mathrm{Si}}_{2}$. About ten years


Hidden order in the cuprates
We propose that the enigmatic pseudogap phase of cuprate superconductors is characterized by a hidden broken symmetry of ${d}_{{x}^{2}\ensuremath{-}{y}^{2}}$-type. The transition to this state is
Thermal transport in the hidden-order state of URu2Si2.
It is concluded that most of the carriers disappear in the ordered state and this leads to a drastic increase in both the phononic and electronic mean free path.
Non-trivial magnetic order in URu2Si2?
We have searched for the hidden multispin order parameters that have been proposed to explain the weak ordered moment observed in the heavy-fermion superconductor URu2Si2. Since the exotic spin order
Theory of unconventional spin density wave: A possible mechanism of the micromagnetism in u-based heavy fermion compounds
We propose a novel spin density wave (SDW) state as a possible mechanism of the anomalous antiferromagnetism, so-called the micromagnetism, in URu_2Si_2 below 17.5[K]. In this new SDW, the
Hidden orbital order in the heavy fermion metal URu2Si2
It is shown that incommensurate orbital antiferromagnetism, associated with circulating currents between the uranium ions, can account for the local fields and entropy loss observed at the 17 K transition.
