Interplay between hybridisation gaps and unusual magnetic orders in Kondo semiconductors CeT2Al10 (T = Ru and Os)
ABSTRACT Kondo semiconductors based on rare-earth elements possess a narrow gap in the renormalised density of states near the Fermi level. Their ground states remain nonmagnetic due to strong
Tuning the hybridization and magnetic ground state of electron and hole doped CeOs2Al10: An x-ray spectroscopy study
Here we present linear and circular polarized soft x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) data at the Ce $M_{4,5}$ edges of the electron (Ir) and hole-doped (Re) Kondo semiconductor CeOs$_2$Al$_{10}$.
Ce 3p hard x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study of the topological Kondo insulator CeRu4Sn6
Bulk sensitive hard x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy data of the Ce 3p core level of CeRu4Sn6 are presented. Using a combination of full multiplet and configuration iteration model we were able to

Yb$_2$Si$_2$Al may be a prototype for exploring different aspects of the Shastry-Sutherland lattice, formed by planes of orthogonally coupled Yb ions. Measurements of the magnetic susceptibility find
Resonant photoemission spectroscopy of the ferromagnetic Kondo system CeAgSb2
We study the electronic structure of single crystal CeAgSb2, a low T c ferromagnetic Kondo system, using synchrotron radiation photoemission spectroscopy (PES) and x-ray absorption spectroscopy
Isoelectronic tuning of heavy fermion systems: Proposal to synthesize Ce3Sb4Pd3
The study of (quantum) phase transitions in heavy-fermion compounds relies on a detailed understanding of the microscopic control parameters that induce them. While the influence of external pressure
Antiferromagnetic Correlations in Strongly Valence Fluctuating CeIrSn.
Comparison with isostructural CeRhSn suggests that these antiferromagnetic correlations emerging at T≪T_{K} result from geometrical frustration, which is unexpected for Ce-based intermediate valence systems, which should feature positive expansivity.
Scattering mechanism of nonmagnetic phase on nano diluted magnetic semiconductors (DMS)
Abstract: This paper shows the scattering mechanism at diluted magnetic semiconductors. The doped magnetic atom produces a scattering potential due to be coupled of itinerant carrier spin of host

We have performed a photoemission spectroscopy (PES) study of CeM2Al10 (M = Fe, Ru, and Os) to directly observe the electronic structure involved in the unusual magnetic ordering. Soft X-ray resonant
Muon-spin-relaxation and inelastic neutron scattering investigations of the caged-type Kondo semimetals: CeT2Al10 (T = Fe, Ru and Os)
Recently, Ce-based caged-type compounds with the general formula CeT2Al10 (T?=?Fe, Ru and Os) have generated considerable interest due to the Kondo semiconducting paramagnetic ground state (down to
Magnetic ground state and electronic structure of CeRu(2)Al(10).
It is found that Coulomb correlations among 4f electrons, when they are included in the LSDA C U approach, stabilize the magnetic structure and in the weakly correlated system (small U) an antiferromagnetic (AFM) ground state with the lowest total energy is preferred.
Evolution from antiferromagnetic to paramagnetic Kondo insulator with increasing hybridization; XPS studies
We present the Ce 3d x-ray photoemission (XPS) spectra for CeM2Al10 (M=Ru, Os, Fe) from which we determined the on-site hybridization between the f and conduction electron states, Δcf, and the
