Strong magnetic pair breaking in Mn-substituted MgB2 single crystals
Magnetic ions (Mn) were substituted in MgB2 single crystals resulting in a strong pair-breaking effect. The superconducting transition temperature, Tc, in Mg1−xMnxB2 has been found to be rapidly
Experimental observation and simulation of unusual microwave response for the superconducting microstrip resonator at small dc magnetic field
An unusual microwave response of the surface impedance Zs of high-Tc thin films at an applied small dc magnetic field (Bdc) at 77 K, namely a decrease of Zs, is observed with the microstrip resonator


Theory of the upper critical fieldHc2 in antiferromagnetic superconductors
The influence of antiferromagnetic order on the upper critical field of superconductors is investigated within the framework of Eliashberg theory. Below the Néel temperature the superconductor is

Tunneling between superconductors
Josephson's calculations showed that for two superconductors separated by an oxide there may exist an osciliating supercurrent of frequency 2e V/h (V is applied voltage) and a possible d-c
Pairbreaking in superconductors near and below antiferromagnetic transitions
The Abrikosov-Gorkov theory for pairbreaking in superconductors due to a dilute concentration of magnetic impurities is generalized to the case when the magnetic ions are present in a large
Properties of a magnetic impurity in a metal
The effect of a polarized conduction-electron cloud back on a magnetic impurity dissolved in a metal is studied. It is shown that at a temperature Tc much higher than the Kondo temperature the system
Observation of enhancement of the superconducting order parameter in the coexistent antiferromagnetic state of SmRh4B4
The first measurements of Josephson tunneling into both the paramagnetic and antiferromagnetic phases of SmRh/sub 4/B/sub 4/ are reported. The results show that the superconducting order parameter of
Low-temperature transport properties of RERh4B4 compounds (RE=Sm, Ho, Er, Lu)
We have measured the low-temperature electrical resistivity ρ and thermal conductivity λ of a selection of RERh4B4 compounds. The compound LuRh4B4 served as the standard material concerning
Microscopic theory of coexistence of superconductivity and antiferromagnetism
A theory of the coexistence of superconductivity and antiferromagnetism is presented. We study the role of the ''diagonal'' exchange coupling between magnetic ions and conduction electrons, using
Resistive upper critical field of single crystals of Tl2Ba2CuO6
We have measured the resistive upper critical field of overdoped single crystals of Tl2Ba2CuO6 from the zero-field transition temperatureTc (approximately 20 K) to temperatures as low as 12 mK,
