Abstract

Novel electronic order is found theoretically for a system where even number of localized electrons per site are coupled with conduction electrons. For precise quantitative study, a variant of the Kondo lattice model is taken with crystalline electric field (CEF) singlet and triplet states for each site. Using the dynamical mean-field theory combined with the continuous-time quantum Monte Carlo method, a staggered order with alternating Kondo and CEF singlets is identified for a case with one conduction electron per site being distributed in two conduction bands each of which is quarter-filled. This electronic order accompanies a charge density wave (CDW) of conduction electrons that accumulate more on Kondo-singlet sites than on CEF-singlet sites. Possible relevance of the present order to the scalar order in PrFe4P12 is discussed.
