The intermetallic compounds of the light actinides exhibit a wide variety of physical, especially magnetic, properties. The latter cover, for example, localized 5f magnetism, correlated 5f electron behaviour, superconductivity and Pauli-paramagnetism. The UX(3) and NpX(3) compounds (X=Al, Ga, In, T1, Si, Ge, Sn, Pb), all crystallizing in the AuCu(3) structure, provide an excellent possibility for an investigation of systematic changes in 5f electron structure. This paper investigates the magnetic properties of NpGa(3) at higher pressures.
