$$f$$電子化合物NdPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$の中性子散乱による研究を行った。0K, 35.4K, 88.3K, 101.5K, and 198.8Kの結晶場レベルを励起スペクトルから明らかにした。$$Gamma_6$$基底状態は主として$$J_z=pm9/2$$の軌道によって構成され、これが大きな負の$$B_{20}=-1.4$$Kと一軸異方性を生じる。結晶場から計算された磁気モーメント, 帯磁率, 磁化曲線, 比熱は実験をよく説明する。CePd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$やPrPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$と共通した電荷分布の存在は同じ構造を持つアクチノイド化合物においても局在的な性質が重要で、UPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$の局在5$$f$$電子状態やNpPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$の重い電子系超伝導にその価数の不安定性が重要な役割をすることを示している。

Inelastic neutron scattering experiments were carried out in order to study the $$f$$-electron states of NdPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$The CEF levels at 0K, 35.4K, 88.3K, 101.5K, and 198.8K were clarified from the excitation spectra. The $$Gamma_6$$ ground state contains the orbital with $$J_z=pm9/2$$ as a main component due to a large negative B$$_{20}=-1.4$$K, which is the origin of the strong uniaxial anisotropy. The estimated magnetic moment, the calculated susceptibility, magnetization curve, and specific heat are in good agreement with the experimental data. The existence of a common charge distribution with CePd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$ and PrPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$. Indicates that a localized character is important even in actinide-based iso-structural compounds as actually observed in UPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$ and also NpPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$, in which the valence crossover plays important role for the heavy fermion superconductivity.
