|Título||Band-filling effects on Kondo-lattice properties
Gusmao, Miguel Angelo Cavalheiro
Iglesias, Jose Roberto
|Abstract||We present theoretical results for a Kondo-lattice model with spin-1/2 localized moments, including both the intrasite Kondo coupling and an intersite antiferromagnetic exchange interaction, treated within an extended mean-field approximation. We describe here the case of a noninteger conduction-band filling for which an ‘‘exhaustion’’ problem arises when the number of conduction electrons is not large enough to screen all the lattice spins. This is best seen in the computed magnetic susceptibility. The Kondo temperature so obtained is different from the single-impurity one, and increases for small values of the intersite interaction, but the Kondo-effect disappears abruptly for low band filling and/or strong intersite coupling; a phase diagram is presented as a function of both parameters. A discussion of experimental results on cerium Kondo compounds is also given.
