Magnetic and Electronic Properties of Ternary Uranium Antimonides UTSb(2) (T=3d-, 4d-, 5d-Electron Transition Metal)
Magnetic, electrical transport, neutron diffraction and Mossbauer measurements have been performed on a series of uranium - transition metal - antimonides UTSb(2) (T=Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Ru, Pd, Ag and Au). Most of these compounds were found to order magnetically at low temperatures and characterized as semimetallic Kondo lattices with strongly screened magnetic moments. Combined neutron diffraction and Mossbauer results allowed determination of the magnetic structures, adopted in antiferromagnetic UNiSb(2), UPdSb(2) and URuSb(2). The magnetic behaviour found in UTSb(2) phases is here discussed with special emphasis on the role of the f-p and f-d hybridization.
