Effects of slight La- or Y-doping on the magnetic properties, especially an unusual magnetic phase diagram, of CeP have been studied mainly through specific heat measurements under magnetic fields up to 10 T on (Ce0.90La0.10)P and (Ce0.95Y0.05)P. In spite of essentially similar behavior in the paramagnetic phase, a large difference has been observed in the magnetic phase diagram between (Ce0.90La0.10)P and (Ce0.95Y0.05)P. The phases suggesting the existence of Γ8 layers similar to those of CeP are identified for (Ce0.95Y0.05)P, but not for (Ce0.90La0.10)P.
