In correlated electron systems, a magnetic transition can be continuously suppressed to zero temperature upon applying a non-thermal parameter such as pressure, magnetic field or doping, giving rise to a quantum critical point (QCP), around which unconventional superconductivity and non-Fermi liquid behavior may appear [1]. In this talk, I will briefly present our recent progresses on the studies of magnetic quantum criticality in the d- and f-electron compounds, with focus on the observations of field-induced antiferromagnetic quantum criticality in CdAs1-xPx, and pressure-induced ferromagnetic quantum criticality in CeRh6Ge4. In CdAs1-xPx, the first-order antiferromagnetic order shows highly unusual behavior in a magnetic field. On the other hand, it has been widely believed that a ferromagnetic quantum critical point is avoided in a pure system [2]. Here, I will show you the first compelling evidence for the existence of a pressure-induced ferromagnetic quantum critical point and its associated strange metal behavior in a clean heavy-fermion compound CeRh6Ge4 [3], which shows characteristics of localized magnetism [4] and anisotropic hybridization [5]. If time allows, I will also briefly present the results of CeRhIn5 measured under high pressure or/and high magnetic field [6].
