The Matthias rule, which is an empirical correlation between the superconducting transition temperature (Tc) and the average number of valence electrons per atom (n) in alloys and intermetallic compounds, has been used in the past as a guiding principle to search for new superconductors with higher Tc. The intermetallic compound SrBi3 (AuCu3 structure)(More)
To unravel the role of doping in iron-based superconductors, we investigated the in-plane resistivity of BaFe(2)As(2) doped at one of the three different lattice sites, Ba(Fe(1-x)Co(x))(2)As(2), BaFe(2)(As(1-x)P(x))(2), and Ba(1-x)K(x)Fe(2)As(2), focusing on the doping effect in the low-temperature antiferromagnetic/orthorhombic (AFO) phase. A major role of(More)
An energy gap is, in principle, a dominant parameter in superconductivity. However, this view has been challenged for the case of high-Tc cuprates, because anisotropic evolution of a d-wave-like superconducting gap with underdoping has been difficult to formulate along with a critical temperature Tc. Here we show that a nodal-gap energy 2ΔN closely follows(More)
The Ba-Ir-Ge ternary compounds BaIr2Ge7 and Ba3Ir4Ge16 exhibit superconductivity (SC) at 2.5 and 5.2 K, respectively. Detailed single-crystal structural analysis revealed that these compounds share unique quasi-two-dimensional networks composed of crown-shaped Ge rings that accommodate Ba atoms at the center, referred to as "edge-shared crown-shaped BaGe16(More)
In high-transition-temperature superconducting cuprates and iron arsenides, chemical doping plays an important role in inducing superconductivity. Whereas in the cuprate case, the dominant role of doping is to inject charge carriers, the role for the iron arsenides is complex owing to carrier multiplicity and the diversity of doping. Here, we present a(More)
We show that the Fermi surface (FS) in the antiferromagnetic phase of BaFe(2)As(2) is composed of one hole and two electron pockets, all of which are three dimensional and closed, in sharp contrast to the FS observed by angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. Considerations on the carrier compensation and Sommerfeld coefficient rule out existence of(More)
Fe-based superconductors have attracted research interest because of their rich structural variety, which is due to their layered crystal structures. Here we report the new-structure-type Fe-based superconductors CaAFe4As4 (A = K, Rb, Cs) and SrAFe4As4 (A = Rb, Cs), which can be regarded as hybrid phases between AeFe2As2 (Ae = Ca, Sr) and AFe2As2.
