Heavy Quasiparticles in Intermetallic Compounds with 4f and 5f Electrons

Abstract : Intermetallic systems with 4f or 5f electrons have often interesting thermodynamic properties at low temperatures. They behave like metals with very heavy charge carriers, i.e., their masses can be several hundred times the free electron mass. However, the […]
