Abstract

We report on the specific-heat determination of the anisotropic phase diagram of single crystals of optimally doped SmFeAsO1-xFx. In zero field, we find a clear cusplike anomaly in C/T with ΔC/Tc=24 mJ/mol K2 at Tc=49.5 K. In magnetic fields along the c axis, pronounced superconducting fluctuations induce broadening and suppression of the specific-heat anomaly which can be described using three-dimensional lowest-Landau-level scaling with an upper critical field slope of –3.5 T/K and an anisotropy of Γ =8. The small value of ΔC/Tc yields a Sommerfeld coefficient γ ∼ 8 mJ/mol K2, indicating that SmFeAsO1-xFx is characterized by a modest density of states and strong coupling.
