Abstract

In EuPd2Si2, the valence transition of Eu atoms between the Eu2+ state and the Eu3+ state takes place when the temperature of the sample changes. In the present study, we prepared EuxY1-xPd2Si2 and Eu xLa1-xPd2Si2, in which the Eu atoms of EuPd2Si2 are systematically substituted by non-magnetic Y or La atoms, and we have measured the magnetic susceptibility χ, the electric resistivity ρ and the thermoelectric power S. We found that the temperature of the valence transition of Eu ions is only very weakly dependent on the alloying concentration x of Eu atoms. In addition, the notable structures of the S(T) curves were observed for these samples, which we understand in term of the anomalies of the relaxation time of conduction electrons interacting with the Eu 4f7 virtual bound state. In this respect, the valence transition of Eu ions in this study makes a contrast with the Kondo problems of the Ce compounds, where the anomalies of the state density of conduction electrons are their central issue.
