Title: Incommensurate magnetism in heavy fermion systems

Abstract: Neutrons and muons were used to explore CeNiAsO and CeAuSb2. The initial instability of the heavy fermion state yields long-wavelength amplitude-modulated SDWs. Analyzing crystal field excitations, we show CeNiAsO is an easy plane system. There is a lower T transition to a commensurate non-collinear state that may result from bi-quadratic interactions. CeAuSb2 is Ising like and the orthorhombic amplitude modulated state is stable to the lowest T. A B-field applied along c yields an incommensurate 2-Q state. Transport anomalies indicate significant modifications in electronic structure that we discuss considering the new information about spin correlations.
