Dressed behavior of the quasiparticles lifetime in the unitary limit of two unconventional superconductors

  author={Pedro L. Contreras E. and Dianela Osorio and E. Yu. Beliayev},
We compare the quasiparticle lifetime behavior in the unitary limit of two unconventional superconductors dressed by non-magnetic impurity scattering to differentiate an anomalous functional behavior in its shape when the disorder concentration is changed in a triplet paired model with respect to the well behave singlet model. For singlet paired superconductors, the functional shape of the lifetime due to elastic scattering around the nodal regions does not change with the change of the… Expand

Resonant impurity scattering in the unconventional superconductors
In this pedagogical review, I provide comparative studies of the impurity scattering effects on the two typical types of the unconventional superconductors: d-wave andΒ±s-wave superconductors. For the… Expand
Consequences of resonant impurity scattering in anisotropic superconductors: Thermal and spin relaxation properties.
It turns out to be difficult to identify any given state of heavy-fermion superconductors with certainty, particularly in the gapless regime at low temperatures, so an experimental test of the predictions on the behavior as a function of impurity concentration would allow for a more definitive characterization of the superconducting state.

Transport and thermal properties of heavy-fermion superconductors: A unified picture.
The transport and thermal properties of heavy-fermion superconductors are explained in terms of an anisotropic order parameter with a line or lines of nodes and an effective mean free path shown to arise in a consistent treatment of impurity scattering close to the unitarity limit. Expand
Transport Properties of D-Wave Superconductors with Impurities

Residual absorption at zero temperature in d-wave superconductors
In a d-wave superconductor with elastic impurity scattering, not all the available optical spectral weight goes into the condensate at zero temperature, and this leads to residual absorption. We find… Expand
Universal heat transport in Sr2RuO4.
A finite residual term in kappa/T is found, providing clear evidence for the superconducting state with an unconventional pairing, and the universal character of heat transport in this spin-triplet superconductor. Expand

Abstract The nature of the orbital structure of the pairs in the superconducting phase of the high-temperature superconducting cuprates remains one of the central questions in this field. Here we… Expand
Nodal quasiparticle lifetime in the superconducting state of Bi(2)Sr(2)CaCu(2)O(8+delta)
The sigma in the superconducting state is found to be well described as the sum of contributions from quasiparticles, condensate, and order parameter fluctuations which draw 30% of the spectral weight from the condensates. Expand

Transport processes in heavy-fermion superconductors.
We show that in anisotropic superconductors in which impurity scattering is the dominant relaxation process at low temperatures, the viscosity and ultrasonic attenuation in the hydrodynamic regime,… Expand
