TDPAC measurement of quadrupole interaction at111Cd in the nearly heavy fermion system USn2.9


Quadrupole interaction at111Cd probe has been studied in the nearly heavy fermion system USn3−δ using the TDPAC method. We observe a large quadrupole interaction frequency withv Q =89.9(10) MHz at 300 K which is much higher than the earlier reported result. The observed frequency shows a linear temperature dependence in the range 25–300 K.
