  • A phenomenological extension of the model of almost localized fermions to finite temperatures is presented. It is used to calculate thermodynamic properties of the normal state of /sup 3/He. No new adjustable parameters are introduced and the effective interaction strength is the same as used by Vollhardt. A good qualitative description of the crossover from Fermi liquid to classical behavior in the specific heat, spin susceptibility, and temperature-dependent pressure (or equivalently thermal expansion) is obtained. In particular, key results, such as the change in specific heat when the spin entropy saturates and the change from thermal expansion to thermal contractionmore » at low temperatures are reproduced.« less
  • We have measured the temperature T and magnetic field H dependence of the electrical resistivity {rho} of U{sub 0.9}Th{sub 0.1}Be{sub 13} in the ranges 0.08 K{le}T{le}10 K and 0 kOe{le}H{le}80 kOe. In zero applied magnetic field below 0.7 K, the resistivity displays a linear temperature dependence, characteristic of non-Fermi-liquid behavior, down to 0.23 K, where it then saturates as T{sup 2}, consistent with Fermi-liquid behavior, down to 0.08 K, the lowest temperature attained in the experiment. Magnetic fields up to 40 kOe have practically no effect on the electrical resistivity above 1 K, but dramatically influence the low temperature {rho}(T)more » behavior below 0.7 K. At temperatures below 0.7 K, an anomalously large positive magnetoresistivity is accompanied by a rapid expansion of the temperature region where Fermi-liquid behavior is observed. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
  • The crossover from conventional Fermi-liquid (FL) behavior to the Luttinger-liquid-like behavior in the two-dimensional single-band small-[ital U] Hubbard model near half filling is demonstrated. The applicability of the FL picture is discussed. This crossover is reproduced in the fermionic channel of the [ital t]-[ital J] model, if the fermion-fermion interaction is taken into account. The results are in qualitative agreement with the normal-state resistivity and photoemission data on the high-[ital T][sub [ital c]] cuprates.
  • Measurements of the temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity [rho](T), magnetic susceptibility [chi](T), and Seebeck coefficient S(T) have been carried out on the N = 2,3, and [infinity] members of the homologous lanthanum nickel oxide systems La[sub n+1]Ni[sub n]O[sub 3n+1] that were annealed in air. With increasing n, a progressive decrease in the electrical resistivity and a gradual change from insulating to metallic behavior are observed. La[sub 3]Ni[sub 2]O[sub 7] is nonmetallic, showing a gradual increase in [rho] and T decrease (d[rho]/dT < 0) from 300 to 4.2K, whereas La[sub 4]Ni[sub 3]O[sub 10] and LaNiO[sub 3] exhibit metallic resistivity (d[rho]/dTmore » > 0). A minimum in [rho](T) near 140 K is observed for La[sub 4]Ni[sub 3]O[sub 10], while LaNiO[sub 3] exhibits a T[sup 2] dependence for [rho](T) below [approximately]50 K. The magnetic susceptibility of LaNiO[sub 3] is Pauli-like, but the [chi](T) data for La[sub 3]Ni[sub 2]O[sub 7] and La[sub 4]Ni[sub 3]O[sub 10] below 350 K show a decrease with decreasing temperature. The Seebeck coefficient of all these compounds is negative at high temperatures; La[sub 3]Ni[sub 2]O[sub 7] and La[sub 4]Ni[sub 3]O[sub 10] exhibit a sign change in S at low temperatures. These results suggest a crossover from a fluctuating-valence to a Fermi-liquid-like behavior with increasing n.« less
  • Data of {sup 11}B NMR in a single crystal of YbNi{sub 2}B{sub 2}C are reported in the temperature range 1.7{endash}300 K and for two orientations of the external magnetic field with respect to the tetragonal c axis of the crystal. For T{gt}50K both the Knight shift K and the nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate T{sub 1}{sup {minus}1} can be accounted for by the presence of localized 4f moments at the Yb{sup 3+} site which polarize the conduction electrons via the Ruderman-Kittel-Kasuya-Yosida mechanism. On the other hand, at low temperatures, T{lt}5K, the relaxation rate T{sub 1}{sup {minus}1} obeys a Korringa-like law withmore » a constant value of T{sub 1}T typical of a normal metal with high density of states at the Fermi level and no localized moments. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
