Spin susceptibility of the topological superconductor UPt3 from polarized neutron diffraction

Spin susceptibility of the topological superconductor UPt3 from polarized neutron diffraction Experiment and theory indicate that UPt3 is a topological superconductor in an odd-parity state, based in part from the temperature independence of the NMR Knight shift. However, quasiparticle spin-flip scattering near a surface, where the Knight shift is measured, might be responsible. We use polarized neutron scattering to measure the bulk susceptibility with H∥c, finding consistency with the Knight shift but inconsistency with theory for this field orientation. We infer that neither spin susceptibility nor a Knight shift are a reliable indication of odd parity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review B American Physical Society (APS)
