Title:
Single Crystal Growth of {{CeTAl3}} ({{T}}~=~{{Cu}}, {{Ag}}, {{Au}}, {{Pd}} and {{Pt}}) 
Abstract:
We report single crystal growth of the series of CeTAl3 compounds with T~=~Cu, Ag, Au, Pd and Pt by means of optical float zoning, where high crystal quality was confirmed in a thorough characterization process. With the exception of CeAgAl3, all compounds crystallize in the non-centrosymmetric tetragonal BaNiSn3 structure (space group: I4mm, No. 107), whereas CeAgAl3 adopts the related orthorhombic PbSbO2Cl structure (Cmcm, No. 63). An attempt to grow CeNiAl3 resulted in the composition CeNi2Al...    »
