Suppression of time-reversal symmetry breaking superconductivity in Pr(Os$$_{1-x}$$Ru$$_x$$)$$_4$$Sb$$_{12}$$ and Pr$$_{1-y}$$La$$_y$$Os$$_4$$Sb$$_{12}$$

Zero-field muon spin relaxation experiments have been carried out in the Pr(Os$$_{1-x}$$Ru$$_x$$)$$_4$$Sb$$_{12}$$ and Pr$$_{1-y}$$La$$_y$$Os$$_4$$Sb$$_{12}$$ alloy systems to investigate broken time-reversal symmetry (TRS) in the superconducting state, signaled by the onset of a spontaneous static local magnetic field B$$_s$$. In both alloy series B$$_s$$ initially decreases linearly with solute concentration. Ru doping is considerably more efficient than La doping, with a 50% faster initial decrease. The data suggest that broken TRS is suppressed for Ru concentration $$xgeq$$0.6 but persists for essentially all La concentrations. Our data support a crystal-field excitonic cooper pairing mechanism for TRS-breaking superconductivity.

Longitudinal-field muon spin relaxation experiments have been carried out in the paramagnetic state of single-crystal Gd$$_2$$Ti$$_2$$O$$_7$$ just above the phase transition. At high applied fields the relaxation time is proportional to field. At low fields the relaxation rate increases markedly as the freezing temperature is approached. This behavior is consistent with the very long autocorrelation function cutoff time.

Transverse-field $$mu$$SR shifts and relaxation rates have been measured in the non-Fermi liquid alloy system UCu$$_{5-x}$$Pt$$_x$$. At low temperatures the fractional spread in Knight shifts is 2 for x=1, but is only half this value for x=1.5 and 2.5. In a disorder-driven scenario where the NFL behavior is due to a broadly distributed characteristic energy E, our results indicate that $$delta$$E/E$$_{av}sim(delta$$K/K)$$_{Trightarrow 0}$$ is similar for UCu$$_{5-x}$$Pd$$_x$$. Our results correlate with the observed suppression of other NFL anomaliess.

Longitudinal-field $$mu$$SR experiments have been performed in unannealed and annealed samples of the heavy-fermion compound UCu$$_4$$Pd to study the effect of disorder on non-Fermi liquid behavior in this material. The observed scaling exponent independent of annealing. Annealed samples exhibited a reduction of the relaxation rate at low temperatures, indicating that annealing shifts fluctuation noise power to higher frequencies. There was no tendency of the inhomogeneous spread in rates to decrease with annealing. The correlation with residual resistivity previously observed for a number of NFL heavy-electron materials is also found in the present work.
