Rare-earth intermetallic compounds continue to draw considerable attention, due to their fundamental importance in understanding physical properties and potential applications based on a variety of phenomena. The focus of this project is to employ two family of rare-earth intermetallic compounds: RE2Pt2In (RE = Pr, Nd) and RE8Pd24Ga (RE = Gd, Tb, Dy) ternary intermetallic systems as a model candidate to uncover the underlying ground state properties that result in a strong coupling between the conduction electron and the 4f-electron of the rare-earth ions.
