Abstract

Measurements of the magnetic penetration depth λ in the Fe-based superconductor Ba1−xRbxFe2As2 (x=0.3, 0.35, 0.4) were carried out using the muon-spin rotation (μSR) technique. The temperature dependence of λ is well described by a two-gap s + s-wave scenario with a small gap Δ1 ≈ 1–3 meV and a large gap Δ2≈7–9 meV. By combining the present data with those previously obtained for RbFe2As2 a decrease of the BCS ratio 2Δ2/kBTc with increasing Rb content x is observed. On the other hand, the BCS ratio 2Δ1/kBTc is almost independent of x. In addition, the contribution of Δ1 to the superfluid density is found to increase with x. These results are discussed in light of the suppression of interband processes upon hole doping.

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.
