The magnetic properties of the multi-functional intermetallic compound Pr1-x-yLaxPbyTe in high magnetic fields

Herrmannsdörfer, T.; Bianchi, A. D.; Freudenberger, J.; Papageorgiou, T. P.; Skourski, Y.; Wosnitza, J.


The intermetallic compound Pr1-x-yLaxPbyTe shows a wide spectrum of physical
phenomena. Depending on the metallurgical composition as function of x and y, the compound
changes its behavior from van Vleck paramagnetism and hyperfine-enhanced nuclear-magnetic
order to super- or semiconductivity. In addition, there are remarkable interplay effects between
these ground states. In consequence, Pr1-x-yLaxPbyTe may serve as an interesting material for
nuclear-spin quantum-computing experiments. In this contribution, we focus on measurements
of the magnetic properties performed in high magnetic fields. We present first data of the
magnetization of Pr1-yPbyTe taken in pulsed magnetic fields up to 47 T for the compositions y =
0, 50, and 90 %.
