Abstract

It was discovered that there are two contributions to the dynamic response in UPd(2)Al(3). The first one is a heavily damped spin-wave, which has been observed previously. It shows no appreciable change on warming through T(c), but softens and becomes overdamped as T approaches T(N). The second one is a quasielastic-like component that exists in the antiferromagnetically ordered state and is strongly localized around the ordered wavevector. As a function of temperature this component exhibits a minimum at the superconducting transition temperature T(c) and increases strongly below T(c). Its width in the momentum space at T = 0.5 K corresponds to the correlation length of approximately 50 angstroms, which is close to the superconducting coherence length of approximately 85 angstroms.
