Abstract

Measurements of the sound velocities, heat capacities, magnetic susceptibilities, and electrical resistivities of single crystals of MnSi, FeSi, and CoSi were performed in the temperature range 2.5-300 K and the elastic constants were calculated. The temperature dependence of the mentioned quantities reveals nontrivial features, reflecting specifics of magnetic and electron subsystems in these materials.
