Murányi, F; Bendele, M; Khasanov, R; Guguchia, Z; Shengelaya, A; Baines, C; Keller, H (2012). Muon spin rotation study of the intercalated graphite superconductor CaC6 at low temperatures. Journal of Superconductivity and Novel Magnetism, 25(2):159-163.

Abstract

Muon spin rotation (μSR) experiments were performed on the intercalated graphite CaC6 in the normal and superconducting state down to 20 mK. In addition, AC magnetization measurements were carried out resulting in an anisotropic upper critical field , from which the coherence lengths ξ ab (0)=36.3(1.5) nm and ξ c (0)=4.3(7) nm were estimated. The anisotropy parameter TeX increases monotonically with decreasing temperature. A single isotropic s-wave description of superconductivity cannot account for this behavior. From magnetic field dependent μSR experiments, the absolute value of the in-plane magnetic penetration depth λ ab (0)=78(3) nm was determined. The temperature dependence of the superfluid density ρ s (T) is slightly better described by a two-gap than a single-gap model.

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.
