Abstract: We report evidence for a close relation between the thermal activation of the rattling motion of the filler guest atoms and inhomogeneous spin dynamics of the Eu2+ spins. The spin dynamics is probed directly by means of Eu2+ electron spin resonance (ESR), performed in both X-band (approximate to 9.4 GHz) and Q-band (approximate to 34 GHz) frequencies in the temperature interval 4.2 K less than or similar to T less than or similar to 300 K. A comparative study with ESR measurements on the beta-Eu8Ga16Ge30 clathrate compound is presented. Our results point to a correlation between the rattling motion and the spin dynamics which may be relevant for the general understanding of the dynamics of cage systems.
