Abstract

We report the de Haas-van Alphen (dHvA) experiment on the filled skutterudite PrFe4P12 exhibiting apparent Kondo-like behaviors in the transport and thermal properties. We have found enormously enhanced cyclotron effective mass mc* = 81 m0 in the high field phase, which indicates that PrFe4P12 is the first Pr compound in which really heavy mass has been unambiguously confirmed. Also in the low field nonmagnetic ordered phase (LOP), we observed the dHvA branch with mc* = 10 m0 that is quite heavy taking into account its small Fermi surface volume (0.15% of the Brillouin zone size). The insensitivity of mass in LOP against the magnetic field suggests that the quadrupolar interaction plays a main role both in the mass renormalization and the LOP formation.
