Shubnikov-de Haas measurements on LuRh2Si2


We present Shubnikov-de Haas measurements on LuRh2Si2, the non-magnetic reference compound to the prototypical heavy-fermion system YbRh2Si2. We find an extensive set of orbits with clear angular dependences. Surprisingly, the agreement with non-correlated band structure calculations is limited. This may be related to an uncertainty in the calculations arising from a lack of knowledge about the exact Si atom position in the unit cell. The data on LuRh2Si2 provide an extensive basis for the interpretation of measurements on YbRh2Si2 indicative of discrepancies between the high-field Fermi surface of YbRh2Si2 and the «small» Fermi surface configuration. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
