Intermolecular overlap geometry gives two classes of fulleride superconductor: electronic structure of 38 K Tc Cs3C60.


Superconductivity emerges for the A15 polymorph of the fulleride Cs3C60 upon compression to a pressure of approximately 4 kbar. Using density functional theory we study the bonding in the A15 phase as a function of unit cell volume comparing it to that in the fcc polymorph. We find that, despite its smaller packing density, the bcc-derived A15 phase has… (More)
