Abstract

A great effort was made at the European Institute for Transuranium Elements to grow single crystals of actinide compounds with cubic crystal structure like the dioxides, the monopnictides, the monochalcogenides, and some intermetallic compounds. The single crystals enable the measurement of physical properties related to the electronic structure in order to extend the knowledge of chemical bonding in the 5f transition elements. The different steps allowing the preparation of actinide samples for solid state physics investigations are: - preparation of actinide metals - refining of actinide metals - preparation of compounds by direct synthesis between the elements of the highest available purity - crystal growth - characterization, orientation and encapsulation of the single crystals.
