Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Polarized light scattering measurements of some heavy fermion superconductors are presented and discussed. Light scattering affords a unique opportunity to study both the f electrons, which are thought to participate in the formation of the superconducting state, and the lattice excitations, which can demonstrate strong electron-phonon interactions and elastic anomalies in these compounds. These points are illustrated by presenting the results of light scattering experiments on single crystal samples of CeCu2Si2, UBe13, UPt3, and URu2Si2.
