Abstract

X-ray magnetic scattering measurements of the critical fluctuations in cubic uranium antimonide are reported. As in some other recent critical scattering studies, we have observed the presence of a second, long-range length scale in the critical fluctuations close to the continuous phase transition to the ordered magnetic phase. The cubic structure of the uranium antimonide (USb) system has allowed us to make measurements of the anisotropy and critical exponents of this feature which may aid in the understanding of the 2 length-scale problem.
