What can we learn from impurities on the hidden order of URu2Si2 ?

Maria E. Pezzoli
Rutgers University

More than 20 years ago a phase transition has been discovered at T=17.5 K in URu2Si2, however the order parameter has not yet been definitely identified. Therefore this phase is commonly referred as "the hidden order" phase. Today the improvements in experiments, samples and theoretical techniques are such that there are great chances to unravel this longstanding mystery in the next future. In particular in this work we want to describe experiments on Rhodium doped URu2Si2 through a Ginzburg Landau approach.
