Title: Magnetic phase diagram and electronic structure of UPt 2 Si 2 at high magnetic fields: A possible field-induced Lifshitz transition

Abstract

We have measured Hall effect, magnetotransport and magnetostriction on the field induced phases of single crystalline UPt2Si2 in magnetic fields up to 60T at temperatures down to 50mK, this way firmly establishing the phase diagram for magnetic fields Bka and c axes. Moreover, for Bkc axis we observe strong changes in the Hall effect at the phase boundaries. From a comparison to band structure calculations utilizing the concept of a dual nature of the uranium 5f electrons, we propose that these represent field induced topological changes of the Fermi surface due to at least one Lifshitz transition. Furthermore, we find a unique history dependence of the magnetotransport and magnetostriction data, indicating that the proposed Lifshitz type transition is of a discontinuous nature, as predicted for interacting electron systems.
