[en] We have measured Hall effect, magnetotransport and magnetostriction on the field induced phases of single crystalline UPt2Si2 in magnetic fields up to 60T at temperatures down to 50mK, this way firmly establishing the phase diagram for magnetic fields Bka and c axes. Moreover, for Bkc axis we observe strong changes in the Hall effect at the phase boundaries. From a comparison to band structure calculations utilizing the concept of a dual nature of the uranium 5f electrons, we propose that these represent field induced topological changes of the Fermi surface due to at least one Lifshitz transition. Furthermore, we find a unique history dependence of the magnetotransport and magnetostriction data, indicating that the proposed Lifshitz type transition is of a discontinuous nature, as predicted for interacting electron systems.
[en] MnSi, which crystallizes in the cubic B20 structure, shows intriguing magnetic properties involving the existence of skyrmions in the magnetic phase diagram. Bulk MnSi has been intensively investigated and thoroughly characterized, in contrast to MnSi thin film, which exhibits widely varying properties in particular with respect to electronic transport. In this situation, we have set out to reinvestigate the transport properties in MnSi thin films by means of studying nanostructure samples. In particular, Hall geometry nanostructures were produced to determine the intrinsic transport properties.
[en] We have carried out a structural and magnetic characterization of Co8Zn8+yMn4−y−xFex by means of bulk techniques, powder neutron scattering and Mössbauer spectroscopy. From our data, we derive the main magnetic parameters and carry out a detailed structural characterization. We observe that disorder is present in our samples in various forms and that this seems to be generic for this class of materials. However, the disorder appears to have little impact on the character of the magnetic phases, and thus seems to be of no relevance for the skyrmionic phases established for these types of materials.

[en] We have carried out a high magnetic field study on single crystalline stoichiometric , a material discussed in terms quantum criticality in itinerant ferromagnets, by means of high field resistivity experiments. Our experiments have been performed at the Laboratoire National des Champs Magnétiques Intenses in Toulouse, France. The resistivity of single crystalline , has been investigated in external fields up to 15.5 T aligned along the c-axis in the temperature range of 1.4–55 K. The main focus of our study lies on the method to extract TN from the magnetoresistivity measurements, because TN could not be easily observed in temperature dependent resistivity for stoichiometric .
