Samenvatting

Low-temperature, high-field deHaas–van Alphen measurements are presented which show that the conduction-electron mass in the Kondo lattice CeB6 decreases strongly with field. This field dependence is consistent with recent specific-heat results. The geometry of the Fermi surface does not depend on field. Thus we observe a reduction in the many-body enhancement of the electronic density of states at the Fermi energy which is described by a change of the itinerant-electron mass alone; the number of particles and the occupation of states in k space remain unchanged. We argue that CeB6 represents a different limit of heavy-fermion behavior as compared to UPt3.
