Abstract

Single crystals of TbRhIn5 were synthesized using the flux growth method. TbRhIn5 adopts the HoCoGa5 structure type and crystallizes in the space group P4/mmm, Z = 1. Lattice parameters are a = 4.6000(6) A, c = 7.4370(11) A, and V = 157.29(6) A3. Transport measurements show that TbRhIn5 is metallic (drho/dT > 0). A sharp antiferromagnetic transition is observed at T(N) = 48 K in the susceptibility data for TbRhIn5, which is highly anisotropic when the field is oriented along the c axis and a-b plane of the crystal and has an average effective moment of 9.72 muB/Tb3+.
