Title: Phase diagram of URu 2–xFe xSi 2 in high magnetic fields

Abstract

Here, electrical transport measurements were performed on URu 2-xFe xSi 2 single-crystal specimens in high magnetic fields up to 45 T (DC fields) and 60 T (pulsed fields). We observed a systematic evolution of the critical fields for both the hidden-order (HO) and large-moment antiferromagnetic (LMAFM) phases and established the 3D phase diagram of T–H–x. In the HO phase, H/H 0 scales with T/T 0 and collapses onto a single curve. However, in the LMAFM phase, this single scaling relation is not satisfied. Within a certain range of x values, the HO phase reenters after the LMAFM phase is suppressed by the magnetic field, similar to the behavior observed for URu 2Si 2 within a certain range of pressures.
