Heavy fermion behavior of U(2)T(2)X compounds
Magnetic and specific heat studies of U(2)T(2)X compounds (T = late transition metal, X = Sn or In), show a frequent occurrence of the gamma enhancement in conjunction with the onset of antiferromagnetic ordering. The largest value of 850 mJ/mol K2 was observed in U(2)Pt(2)In, which is non-magnetic down to 1.2 K. Variations of electronic structure are documented by optimised relativistic LCAO calculations, which account for both the onset of magnetism and the development of the gamma values.
