|Title:||Evidences for intermediate valence behavior in CeNi5In|
da Silva, LM
|Abstract:||We report results on transport, magnetic and specific heat measurements of the CeNi5In compound. It was found to crystallize in the hexagonal CeNi5Sn type of structure, space group P6(3)/mmm with parameters a = 4.891(1) angstrom and c = 19.878(1) angstrom. The magnetic susceptibility curve shows an absolute small value of order of 10(-3) emu/mol and deviation from Curie-Weiss behavior for T < 100 K. The low temperature (T < 10 K) specific heat and resistivity data is consistent with Fermi liquid properties. The results suggest a probable intermediate valence or spin fluctuation behavior for the title intermetallic compound. (c) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
