SmRu$$_4$$P$$_{12}$$$$T_{rm MI}=16.5$$K以下の反強磁性相と$$T_{rm MI}$$$$T^*$$(=14K)間の中間相を共鳴と非共鳴のX線回折法で研究した。中間相では非共鳴の$$q$$=(1,0,0)のThomson散乱が磁場によって誘起される。この現象は理論的に予言されている$$p$$バンドの電荷秩序を反映した原子変位によって引き起こされている。同時にSmの磁場方向の反強磁性モーメントが強調され、これは$$Gamma_7-Gamma_8$$結晶場状態の交互配列を反映していると考えられる。この結果は、軌道に依存した$$p$$-$$f$$混成とpバンドのネスティング不安定性がPrRu$$_4$$P$$_{12}$$やPrFe$$_4$$P$$_{12}$$と同様な非従来型電荷秩序を引き起こしていることを示している。

The antiferromagnetic ordered phase below $$T_{rm MI}$$ = 16.5 K and the unresolved intermediate phase between $$T_{rm MI}$$ and $$T^*$$ (= 14 K) in SmRu$$_4$$P$$_{12}$$ have been studied by resonant and nonresonant X-ray diffraction. In the intermediate phase, nonresonant Thomson scattering with $$q$$ = (1,0,0) is induced by applying a magnetic field. This phenomena is caused by atomic displacements reflecting the charge order in the $$p$$ band, as predicted theoretically. Simultaneously, the antiferromagnetic moment of Sm is enhanced along the field direction, which is considered to reflect the staggered ordering of the $$Gamma_7$$ - $$Gamma_8$$ crystal-field states. The present results show that the orbital-dependent $$p$$ - $$f$$ hybridization in association with the nesting instability in the $$p$$ band gives rise to the unconventional charge order similarly with PrRu$$_4$$P$$_{12}$$ and PrFe$$_4$$P$$_{12}$$.
