Abstract

Large crystals of Yb14MgSb11 were grown through a Sn flux method. Magnetic susceptibility measurements yield an effective magnetic moment of 3.4(1) μB, revealing the presence of both divalent and trivalent Yb in Yb14MgSb11. Previously assumed to only contain Yb2+ as in Yb14MnSb11, the mixed valency demonstrates that Yb14MgSb11 is a Zintl phase.
