We present magnetization, specific heat, and (27)Al NMR investigations on YbFe2Al10 over a wide range in temperature and magnetic field. The magnetic susceptibility at low temperatures is strongly enhanced at weak magnetic fields, accompanied by a ln(T0/T) divergence of the low-T specific heat coefficient in zero field, which indicates a ground state of correlated electrons. From our hard-x-ray photoemission spectroscopy study, the Yb valence at 50 K is evaluated to be 2.38. The system displays valence fluctuating behavior in the low to intermediate temperature range, whereas above 400 K, Yb(3+) carries a full and stable moment, and Fe carries a moment of about 3...

We have investigated the temperature and pressure dependency of the electronic structure of Yb-filled skutterudites, YbFe(4)Sb(12) and Yb(0.88)Fe(4)Sb(12), using x-ray absorption and emission spectroscopies. An anomalous increase of the Yb valence, which is beyond the conventional Anderson model picture, is found to coincide with the onset of the ferromagnetic order in the x=0.88 sample below 20 K. In contrast, the nearly stoichiometric YbFe(4)Sb(12) is paramagnetic down to 2 K and the Yb valence is independent of temperature...

The intermetallic compound YbFe(6)Ge(6) adopts two very closely related hexagonal crystal structures, HfFe(6)Ge(6)-type and YCo(6)Ge(6)-type. In both structures the Fe sublattice orders antiferromagnetically at 485(2) K. The Yb sublattice does not order magnetically, down to 1.5 K. In the HfFe(6)Ge(6)-type structure, the Fe magnetic moments undergo a spin reorientation away from the C-axis upon cooling, commencing at around 60 K, whereas in the YCo(6)Ge(6)-type structure the Fe moments remain ordered along the C-axis, or quite close to it...

Substitution of Mn(3+) into the trigonal-bipyramidal sites of oxides with YbFe(2)O(4)-related structures produces an intense blue color because of an allowed d-d transition. This has been demonstrated utilizing a variety of hosts including ScAlMgO(4), ScGaMgO(4), LuGaMgO(4), ScGaZnO(4), LuGaZnO(4), and LuGaO(3)(ZnO)(2). The hue of the blue color can be controlled by the choice of the host.

The title compounds were obtained by reaction of the elemental components with an excess of aluminum after dissolving the matrix in hydrochloric acid. The compounds LnRe(2)Al(10) (Ln = Ho-Lu) crystallize with a new structure type, which was determined from single-crystal X-ray data of LuRe(2)Al(10): Cmcm, a = 929.1(1) pm, b = 1027.7(2) pm, c = 2684.1(5) pm, Z = 12. The two different lutetium atoms of the structure are coordinated by four rhenium and 16 aluminum atoms, while the two rhenium positions are in distorted icosahedral coordination of two lutetium and 10 aluminum atoms...

The heterometallic complex (NH(3))(2)YbFe(CO)(4) was prepared from the reduction of Fe(3)(CO)(12) by Yb in liquid ammonia. Ammonia was displaced from (NH(3))(2)YbFe(CO)(4) by acetonitrile in acetonitrile solution, and the crystalline compounds {[(CH(3)CN)(3)YbFe(CO)(4))](2).CH(3)CN}(infinity) and [(CH(3)CN)(3)YbFe(CO)(4)](infinity) were obtained. An earlier X-ray study of {[(CH(3)CN)(3)YbFe(CO)(4)](2).CH(3)CN}(infinity) showed that it is a ladder polymer with direct Yb-Fe bonds. In the present study, an X-ray crystal structure analysis also showed that [(CH(3)CN)(3)YbFe(CO)(4)](infinity) is a sheetlike array with direct Yb-Fe bonds...

We report the results of optical studies of new heavy fermion compounds YbFe(4)Sb(12) and CeRu(4)Sb(12). We show that these compounds, as well as several other heavy fermion materials with a nonmagnetic ground state, obey a universal scaling relationship between the quasiparticle effective mass m(*) and the magnitude of the energy gap Delta in the excitation spectrum. This result is in accord with the picture of hybridization of localized f-electron and free carrier states.
