Khasanov, R; Bendele, M; Conder, K; Keller, H; Pomjakushina, E; Pomjakushin, V (2010). Iron isotope effect on the superconducting transition temperature and the crystal structure of FeSe1−x. New Journal of Physics, 12(7):073024.

Abstract

The Fe isotope effect (Fe-IE) on the transition temperature Tc and the crystal structure was studied in the Fe chalcogenide superconductor FeSe1−x by means of magnetization and neutron powder diffraction (NPD). The substitution of natural Fe (containing sime92% of 56Fe) by its lighter 54Fe isotope leads to a shift in Tc of 0.22(5) K corresponding to an Fe-IE exponent of αFe=0.81(15). Simultaneously, a small structural change with isotope substitution is observed by NPD, which may contribute to the total Fe isotope shift of Tc.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
