Title

Study of the Electronic Properties of Some Ytterbium Filled Skutterudites by Magnetic Susceptibility and X-ray Absorption and Tin-119 Mössbauer Spectroscopy

Abstract

The electronic structure of ytterbium and tin in the filled or partially filled skutterudite was investigated. The investigation was carried out using x-ray absorption, magnetic susceptibility and Mössbauer spectroscopy. The ytterbium valence obtaines and ytterbium L III-edge x-ray absorption measurements is in excellent agreement. The tin-119 Mössbauer spectral hyperfine parameters indicate that tin substitutes on the antimony sublattice of the skutterudite structure.
