Summary of "Superconductivity with Tc= 7 K under pressure for Cu-, and Au-doped BaFe2As2."

It is noteworthy that chemical substitution of BaFe2As2 (122) with the noble elements Cu and Au gives superconductivity with a maximum Tc = 3 K, while Ag substitution (Ag-122) stays antiferromagnetic. For Ba(Fe1-xTMx)2As2, TM= Cu, Au, or Ag, and by doping an amount of x=0.04, a-lattice parameter slightly increases (0.4%) for all TM dopants, while c-lattice decreases (-0.2%) for TM=Cu, barely moves (0.05%) for Au, and increases (0.2%) for Ag. Despite the naive expectation that the noble elements of group 11 should affect the quantum properties of 122 similarly, they produce significant differences extending to the character of the ground state. For the Ag-122 crystal, evidence of only a filamentary superconductivity is noted with pressure. However, for Au and Cu doping (x0.03) we find a substantial improvement in the superconductivity, with Tc increasing to 7 K and 7.5 K, respectively, under 20 kbar of pressure. As with the ambient pressure results, the identity of the dopant therefore has a substantial impact on the ground state properties. Density functional theory calculations corroborate these results and find evidence of strong electronic scattering for Au and Ag dopants, while Cu is comparatively less disruptive to the 122 electronic structure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).

The ability of an element or metallic alloy to allow the passage of ELECTRONS without ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE and expel MAGNETIC FIELDS below a certain threshold temperature called superconducting transition temperature.

The blood pressure in the VEINS. It is usually measured to assess the filling PRESSURE to the HEART VENTRICLE.

Persistently high systemic arterial BLOOD PRESSURE. Based on multiple readings (BLOOD PRESSURE DETERMINATION), hypertension is currently defined as when SYSTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently greater than 140 mm Hg or when DIASTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently 90 mm Hg or more.

The blood pressure in the ARTERIES. It is commonly measured with a SPHYGMOMANOMETER on the upper arm which represents the arterial pressure in the BRACHIAL ARTERY.
