We describe recent experiments performed in our laboratory that address spin or charge ordered phases in novel rare earth and actinide based materials and phenomena that emerge when these ordered phases are suppressed toward 0 K by varying an external control parameter such as chemical composition, pressure, or magnetic field. Specific examples discussed include magnetic order, heavy fermion behavior, and unconventional quantum criticality in noncentrosymmetric M2T12P7 compounds (M = rare earth, actinide; T = Co, Fe) and the interplay of superconductivity and charge density waves in rare earth tritelluride compounds RTe3 (R = Gd, Tb, Dy).
