Abstract

Experimental results of magnetization and neutron diffraction measurements on single-crystal CePdSn revealed that the 4f electrons in CePdSn are in a localized Ce3+ state, and the magnetic structure below TN = 7 K is incommensurate with the propagation vector of q = (0, 0.473, 0). Nickel substitution for Pd strengthens the Kondo effect, resulting in the decrease of TN and the nonmagnetic ground state of 4f electrons in CeNiSn.
