Abstract

Elastic and inelastic neutron scattering, specific heat, susceptibility and resistivity experiments on the series of cubic Laves phase compounds PrX2 (X = Mg, Al, Co, Ni, Ru, Rh, Pt, Ir) are discussed. In all these compounds, magnetic phase transitions are found. The electronic ground state in the paramagnetic regime is either the singlet Г1, or the non-magnetic doublet Г3. Furthermore the ratio of the magnetic interaction to the crystal field splitting varies considerably through the series. In PrNi2 the hyperfine interaction determines the nature of the phase transition.
