Abstract

We grew single crystals of PdBiSe with the ullmannite-type cubic chiral structure and carried out de Haas-van Alphen (dHvA) experiments to clarify the Fermi surface properties. The Fermi surfaces are found to split into two different Fermi surfaces, reflecting the non-centrosymmetric crystal structure. A splitting energy between two nearly spherical Fermi surfaces named α and α' is determined as 1050-1260 K. These Fermi surfaces are identified to be due the band-149 and -150 electron Fermi surfaces centered at the Γ point from the results of full-potential linearized augmented plane wave (FLAPW) energy band calculations under consideration of a mass correction in the spin-orbit interaction for Bi-6p electrons based on the relativistic eff ect. The theoretical splitting energy between these Fermi surfaces is 1080-1150 K, which is in good agreement with the experimental value.
