  • Photoemission has been applied to study the electronic structure of YNi{sub 2}B{sub 2}C and related materials, with comparison of the results with the density of states generated from band structure calculations. The absence in photoemission of the predicted peak in the density of states at the Fermi level in undoped YNi{sub 2}B{sub 2}C, and the inconsistency of the photoemission data with a rigid-band model for the effects of Co doping on the electronic structure of YNi{sub 2{minus}x}Co{sub x}B{sub 2}C are discussed. In addition, recent photoemission data from the new superconductor La{sub 3}Ni{sub 2}B{sub 2}N{sub 3} are presented.
  • The new pseudo-binary intermetallic compound, Ti{sub 11}(Sb,Sn){sub 8}, has been synthesized by reacting Ti and Sb in a Sn flux at 1100 C and its structure determined from both single-crystal X-ray and neutron diffraction data (orthorhombic, Pnma, Z=4, X-ray diffraction at 90 K: a=14.6877(6) {angstrom}, b=5.5677(2) {angstrom}, c=17.7207(7) {angstrom}, V=1449.14(10) {angstrom}3, neutron diffraction at room temperature: a=14.677(6) {angstrom}, b=5.577(3) {angstrom}, c=17.716 (6) {angstrom}, V=1450(1) {angstrom}3). The structure contains two differently oriented repeating layers and interstitial atoms that are closely connected to make linear chains aligned along the crystal b axis. The compound exhibits mixed site occupancies of Sb and Snmore » on the anion sites. The phase width (Sb/Sn ratio=0.98-1.40) was determined by microprobe elemental analysis. The electrical resistivity of a single crystal as a function of temperature is anisotropic (b=1{approximately}2 x 10{sup {minus}1} m {center_dot}cm, b = 0.5 x 10{sup {minus}1} m {center_dot} cm) and confirms that this compound is metallic. Magnetic susceptibility measurements show Pauli paramagnetism.« less
