Resumo

GdFe2Zn20 is a complex cagelike compound with an unusually high ferromagnetic ordering temperature (T-C = 86 K) for a very diluted Gd3+ magnetic sublattice, embedded in a matrix that features strong electronelectron correlations. Here, we report on a magnetic and electronic study of the substitutional intermetallic system Gd(Co1-y Fe-y)(2)Zn-20 combining magnetizationmeasurements plus first-principles density functional theory (DFT) calculations with temperature-dependent electron spin resonance (ESR). After accounting for electron-electron correlations and itinerant molecular field effects, the ESR results indicate that the exchange interaction between the Gd3+ is processed via a single band of d-type electrons at the Fermi level and the exchange interaction is covalent in nature {[}J(0)(fd) < 0] with a strong conduction electron (ce) momentum transfer dependence {[}Jfd (q)]. The DFT calculations support this scenario by indicating a major contribution of d-type ce at the Fermi level and a spin polarization in (Y, Gd) Fe2Zn20 wherein the most stable configuration is antiferromagnetic between Gd3+ and ce spins. Our results demonstrate that the standard Ruderman-Kittel-Kasuya-Yosida mechanism cannot explain the ferromagnetic behavior of GdFe2Zn20 and a superexchangelike mechanism is proposed for this magnetic interaction. An ``extended phase diagram{''} for the double substitution sequence YCo2Zn20. GdCo2Zn20. GdFe2Zn20 is presented and discussed. (AU)
