# Weak magnetism and non-Fermi liquids near heavy-fermion critical points

@article{Senthil2003WeakMA, title={Weak magnetism and non-Fermi liquids near heavy-fermion critical points}, author={Todadri Senthil and Matthias Vojta and Subir Sachdev}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2003}, volume={69}, pages={035111} }

This paper is concerned with the weak-moment magnetism in heavy-fermion materials and its relation to the non-Fermi liquid physics observed near the transition to the Fermi liquid. We explore the hypothesis that the primary fluctuations responsible for the non-Fermi liquid physics are those associated with the destruction of the large Fermi surface of the Fermi liquid. Magnetism is suggested to be a low-energy instability of the resulting small Fermi surface state. A concrete realization of…

Evidence is found for an atomically local contribution to the magnetic correlations which develops at the critical gold concentration, corresponding to a magnetic ordering temperature of zero, which implies that a Fermi-liquid-destroying spin-localizing transition, unanticipated from the spin density wave description, coincides with the antiferromagnetic quantum critical point.
