Magnetic Structure of U(2)Pt(2)Sn
U(2)Pt(2)Sn forms in a ternary deriative version of the tetragonal U(3)Si(2)-type of structure. Clear anomalies in the magnetic susceptibility, specific heat and electrical resistivity around 15K and their changes in magnetic fields indicate antiferromagnetic ordering below this temperature. The antiferromagnetic ground state of U(2)Pt(2)Sn is corroborated by the metamagnetic transition observed in the magnetization around 22T measured at 4.2K and by magnetic reflections in the neutron-powder diffraction pattern at low temperatures.
