Abstract: Experiments with resonant photons at the U M4 edge have been performed on a sample of USb0.9Te0.1, which has an incommensurate magnetic structure with k=k=0.5962 reciprocal lattice units. The reflections of the form kkk, as observed previously in a commensurate k=1/2 system N. Bernhoeft et al., Phys. Rev. B 69, 174415 2004, are observed, removing any doubt that these occur because of multiple scattering or high-order contamination of the incident photon beam. They are clearly connected with the presence of a 3k configuration. Measurements of the kkk reflections from the sample UAs0.8Se0.2 in a magnetic field show that the transition at T50 K is between a low-temperature 2k and high-temperature 3k state and that this transition is sensitive to an applied magnetic field. These experiments stress the need for quantitative theory to explain the intensities of these kkk reflections.
