Large single crystals of YbRh2Si2 have been successfully grown from a high-temperature solution technique, using Zn flux and followed by a decanting process. As opposed from the crystals growth from In flux, the crystals are flux-free and larger on average, suitable for neutron scattering experiments. Characterization of basic physical properties and comparison with crystals grown using In flux were performed. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
