少数キャリア系UTeS, USeSの強磁性転移温度近辺における磁化の臨界挙動について研究を行った。自発磁化等の温度依存から、各種臨界指数$$beta$$,$$gamma$$, $$delta$$を決定した。これらの強磁性状態は一軸磁気異方性が大きいことが特徴である。しかし、その臨界現象は三次元イジングのユニバーサリティクラスに属さないことが明らかになった。ウラン系強磁性超伝導物質UGe$$_2$$とURhGeでも類似の臨界指数が報告されている。本研究の結果、この新奇な臨界現象は系のキャリア数に依存せず出現することが明らかになった。

We report the novel critical behavior of magnetization in low carrier concentration systems UTeS and USeS that exhibit the large negative magnetoresistance around the ferromagnetic transition temperatures $$T_{rm C}$$ $$sim$$ 85 and 23 K, respectively. We determine the critical exponents, $$beta$$ for the spontaneous magnetization $$M_{rm s}$$, $$gamma$$ for the magnetic susceptibility $$chi$$, and $$delta$$ for the magnetization isotherm at $$T_{rm C}$$ with several analytical methods. The ferromagnetic states in UTeS and USeS have strong uniaxial magnetic anisotropy. However, the critical exponents in the two compounds are different from those in the three-dimensional Ising system. Similar exponents have been reported for the uranium ferromagnetic superconductors UGe$$_2$$ and URhGe. An important finding is that the novel critical phenomenon appears regardless of the charge carrier density or the degree of the itinerancy of the $$5f$$ electrons.
