Structural modulations in UPt{sub 3} single crystal whiskers

Abstract

Recent transmission electron microscopy (TEM) data on the heavy fermion superconductor UPt{sub 3} find a complex periodic modulation in the basal plane, the nature of which is unclear. We present TEM data on single crystal whiskers of UPt{sub 3} grown spontaneously from the melt. We find a modulation in the a-c plane, consistent with a description in terms of a single q, allowing us to present the first accurate determination of the c{sup *} component of the modulation. This structure persists across a wide area of the whisker, making these samples candidates for X-ray studies of the modulation. ((orig.)).
