Título: A comparative x-ray study of UM2Si2 compounds with 5f electron duality
We have carried out hard x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (HAXPES) measurements at the U 4f core level and non-resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (NIXS) at the U O4,5 edges of UT2Si2 compounds that all form in the tetragonal ThCr2Si2 structure but exhibit different ground state properties: UFe2Si2 is a Pauli paramagnet; URu2Si2 is the famous hidden order compound of which the order parameter is still fiercely debated despite 30 years of intense experimental and theoretical studies; UPd2Si2 and UNi2Si2 are antiferromagnets with TN well above 100 K and sizeable ordered magnetic moments. We have determined the degree of the 5f-electron localization (HAXPES) as well as the symmetry of the 5f ground state wave function (NIXS) across these very different compounds.
