Recently we reported on the discovery of two consecutive, pressure driven magnetic instabilities in Yb2Pd2Sn [1].
They emerge in a non-Fermi liquid environment at the initial and the final point of a dome-like, single magnetic
phase at pressures pc1 ~ 1 GPa and pc2 ~ 4 GPa. This unique behavior of Yb2Pd2Sn is supposed to result from
mutually competing, pressure modified energy scales, which in case of Yb2Pd2Sn cause a sign change in the
pressure dependence of the Kondo temperature TK and magnetic ordering temperature TN. An earlier study [2]
demonstrated the occurrence of long range magnetic order in a dome-like phase space for a narrow concentration
range of Sn-rich samples in Yb2Pd2In1-xSnx. Ordered moments of the order of 1 μB are attained and the transition
temperature reveals values above 3 K, although both Yb2Pd2In and Yb2Pd2Sn exhibit paramagnetic ground states.
The aim of the present work is a detailed study of the pressure and field response of Yb2Pd2Sn and of alloys with
concentrations in the "magnetic dome" of Yb2Pd2In1-xSnx. We show how the transition temperatures and the
ground states modify when applying both pressure and magnetic fields.
