Effects of Fe doping on anomalous specific heat and XAFS oscillation in antiferromagnetic metal Mn$$_3$$Si

Hiraka, Haruhiro*; Oyama, Kenji*; Kosaka, Masashi*; Matsumura, Daiju  

The specific heat of Mn$$_{3-x}$$Fe$$_x$$Si was measured over a wide temperature range. Aside from the lattice and electronic specific heat components, another component had a significant contribution to the specific heat at low temperatures in the case of $$x$$ = 0.2; however, its contribution decreased when $$x$$ = 1.0. It is observed that the net component was retained at temperatures significantly higher than $$T_N$$ for both $$x$$. The XAFS spectra of the Mn $$K$$-edge for $$x$$ = 0 not only indicated a smooth structure near the edge, but also an unusually small amplitude in the extended high energy region; however, these features disappeared with Fe doping. The specific heat and XAFS data were discussed interms of the charge degree of freedom or electronic inhomogeneity.
