Abstract

We have determined the Kondo temperature and crystal-field splitting of the new heavy-fermion compound CePd2Al3 by thermopower and inelastic neutron scattering. The absence of static, magnetically ordering cerium moments in single crystals is demonstrated by zero-field μ+SR. Small deviations of aluminum stoichiometry yield significant variations of TN of CePd2Al3 and Tc of UPd2Al3 in different samples.
