[en] A necessary element for the predicted topological state in Kondo insulator SmB6 is the hybridization gap which opens in this compound at low temperatures. Here, in this work, we present a comparative study of the in-gap density of states due to Sm vacancies by Raman scattering spectroscopy and heat capacity for samples where the number of Sm vacancies is equal to or below 1%. We demonstrate that hybridization gap is very sensitive to the presence of Sm vacancies. Lastly, at the amount of vacancies above 1% the gap fills in with impurity states and low temperature heat capacity is enhanced.
[en] In order to increase accessibility to the μSR spectroscopy for people in various fields of science and engineering, a conceptual design study was made to realize a compact and inexpensive muon source by using 300-MeV electron microtron and a large-acceptance muon-capture. Advanced radiography imaging with muon spin probes will become possible for bio-medical studies, inspection of re-enforced architectures, etc.
[en] Here, we present magnetization measurements on Sr4Ru3O10 as a function of temperature and magnetic field applied perpendicular to the magnetic easy c-axis inside the ferromagnetic phase. Peculiar metamagnetism evolves in Sr4Ru3O10 below the ferromagnetic transition TC as a double step in the magnetization at two critical fields Hc1 and Hc2. We map the H-T phase diagram with special focus on the temperature range 50 K ≤T≤TC. We find that the critical field Hc1(T) connects the field and temperature axes of the phase diagram, whereas the Hc2 boundary starts at 2.8 T for the lowest temperatures and ends in a critical endpoint at (1 T; 80 K). We also conclude from the temperature dependence of the ratio Hc1Hc2(T) that the double metamagnetic transition is an intrinsic effect of the material and it is not caused by sample stacking faults such as twinning or partial in-plane rotation between layers.
