"Magnetic Instabilities in Non-Fermi Liquid Ce3Pd4Si4 Driven by Magnetic Dilution";
Solid State Phenomena,
Materials which are close to a quantum critical point are rather prone to magnetic instabilities; even small modifications of relevant interaction mechanisms can be responsible for a magnetic phase transition to occur at finite temperatures. In this work it is demonstrated that actually a substitution of Ce by non-magnetic La in Ce3Pd4Si4 drives a magnetic instability, with ordering temperatures as high as 10 K. To trace the evolution of magnetism and the onset of long range magnetic order in Ce3-xLaxPd4Si4, various bulk property measurements were carried out.
