Abstract

Thermal expansion and magnetostriction measurements have been performed on a single crystal CeRh3B2 with an unusually high Curie temperature TC∼120 K. The thermal expansion coefficients show a weak anomaly at TC and characteristic positive and negative peaks around 150 K for [0 0 0 1] and [1 0 1̄ 0], respectively. The magnetostriction at 4.2 K for the field along the basal plane is very small, with an order of 10-5, suggesting a localized nature of Ce - 4f moments.
