Abstract

X-ray diffraction studies have been performed in order to investigate the p-f mixing effect producing the unusual magnetic properties in the low-carrier system CeSb. Several X-ray satellite-peak patterns were observed below TN = 17 K. The wave numbers and the intensities of the satellite peaks are in accordance with the model of periodic arrangement of short and long distances due to two kinds of magnetic layers in the structures reported by Rossat-Mignod et al.. The shorter distance is due to the strong p-f mixing effect, which is spatially restricted within the ferromagnetic layers of Γ8-like Ce ions, and the longer one due to the layers of normal Γ7 Ce ions.
