Symmetry and heterogeneity in high temperature by Antonio Bianconi PDF

The article of this booklet is the quantum mechanism that permits the macroscopic quantum coherence of a superconducting condensate to withstand to the assaults of hot temperature. way to this basic challenge of contemporary physics is required for the layout of room temperature superconductors, for controlling the decoherence results within the quantum pcs and for the certainty of a potential function of quantum coherence in residing topic that's debated this day in quantum biophysics.

H. F. Kiefl: Rev. Mod. Phys. 72(3), 769 (2000) 32, 63 5 Probing the Energy Gap The most direct tool for the determination of the excitation gap of superconductors is spectroscopy. Spectroscopy probes the basic excitation of a system by absorption and emission of a well known amount of energy. In general, different kind of probes can be used such as photons, neutrons and electrons, as long as the initial and final states with respect to energy and momentum can be determined. In the following sections tunnelling spectroscopy and the related methods of scanning tunnelling spectroscopy and point-contact spectroscopy will be discussed, three methods which have been frequently used for the investigation of conventional and unconventional superconductors.

In a simple estimate one can verify that a change of 1 Å in the surface-tip distance leads to a change of almost one order of magnitude in the tunnelling current. 3) already shows the main result of the present consideration, namely that the tunnel current depends on the density of states of the sample and I − V measurements give access to the local density of states at the surface. Usually however, for experimental reasons in order to make use of the Lock-In technique, the differential conductance dI/dV is regarded which is more sensitive on ρS (E).

The temperature dependence of the relaxation rate also acts as a probe for the nodal structure of the superconductor. Even though the coherence peak might be suppressed, s-wave superconductivity is evidenced by an exponential decrease of 1/T 1 below T c . In contrast, the relaxation rate of unconventional superconductors exhibits a T n power-law behaviour. For example, in the case of a line node 1/T 1 ∼ T 3 is observed. An overview over resonance experiments on heavy-fermion systems including heavy-fermion superconductors has been published by Kitaoka et al.
