Abstract

Magnetic and resistivity measurements made here reveal an absence of charge- density wave formation in the d' metallic layer di-iodide La12,despite our band structural work showing the Fermi surface of this material to have strong nesting characteristics. The absence of CDWS in these circumstances casts interesting light on the formation of CDW/PLDS in the analogous layer dichalcogenides 5d' IT- and 2H-TaS2,etc. Comparison is made also with other La'' metallic compounds, like LaS and LaH2.

Within the rest of the RE di-iodide family there arise further features of significance concerning spin-density waves, magnetic frustration and interconfiguration fluctuation phenomena.
