Abstract

Hall effect measurements have been conducted on high-quality single crystals of the heavy-fermion superconductor CeCoIn5. The anomalous Hall contribution is negligible in the investigated temperature range from 0.05 to 5 K. The measured Hall resistivities ρxy show a noticeable change in slope between the low-field (initial Hall coefficient) and the high-field region. In the superconducting regime, T < 2.3 K, Hall measurements are restricted to high magnetic fields H > Hc 2, the upper critical field of superconductivity. The high-field Hall coefficient is almost constant for temperatures down to 250 mK. At T {less-than or slanted equal to} 250 mK, an additional change in curvature of ρxy vs. H is observed. © 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
