Angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) reveals the features of the electronic structure of quasi-two-dimensional crystals which are crucial for spin and charge ordering and determine the mechanisms of electron–electron interactions, including superconducting pairing. The newly discovered iron-based superconductors (FeSC) promise interesting physics stemming, on one hand, from a coexistence of superconductivity and magnetism and, on the other, from a complex multi-band electronic… Expand

Proximity and Josephson effects in microstructures based on multiband superconductors (Review Article)
Emerging in the 1950s, the multiband superconductivity has been considered for a long time as an approximate model in the form of a generalization of the BCS theory to the case of two bands for aExpand
ARPES measurements of the superconducting gap of Fe-based superconductors and their implications to the pairing mechanism.
TLDR
It is shown that while Fermi-surface-driven pairing mechanisms fail to provide a universal scheme for the Fe-based superconductors, theoretical approaches based on short-range interactions lead to a more robust and universal description of superconductivity in these materials. Expand
Antiferromagnetism and its origin in iron-based superconductors (Review Article)
In iron-based superconductors, unravelling the origin of the antiferromagnetism is a crucial step towards understanding the high-Tc superconductivity as it is widely believed that the magneticExpand

Magnetic Lifshitz transition and its consequences in multi-band iron-based superconductors
TLDR
The results show that two Lifshitz transitions can develop in analysed systems and the first one occurs in the superconducting phase and takes place at approximately constant magnetic field, which can explain the experimental observations in FeSe and Co-doped BaFe2As2 compounds. Expand

A notable role in understanding of the microscopic electronic properties of high-temperature superconductors (HTSC) belongs to angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). This techniqueExpand
Magnetism in Fe-based superconductors.
TLDR
Studies of the spin dynamics of the parent compounds show that the interactions are best characterized as anisotropic three-dimensional interactions, and analysis of the low temperature spin waves under the assumption of a Heisenberg Hamiltonian indicates strong in-plane anisotropy with a significant next-nearest-neighbor interaction.

Orbital-Independent Superconducting Gaps in Iron Pnictides
TLDR
An orbital-independent superconducting gap magnitude was found for the hole Fermi surfaces, which is not expected from the superconductivity associated with spin fluctuations and nesting, but it could be better explained invoking magnetism-induced interorbital pairing, orbital fluctuations, or a combination of orbital and spin fluctuations.

TLDR
The momentum dependence of the superconducting energy gap is reported, where an anisotropy that rules out coupling through spin fluctuations and the sign change is found, and suggests that orbital fluctuations assisted by phonons are the best explanation for superconductivity. Expand
Unified picture for magnetic correlations in iron-based superconductors.
TLDR
The results reveal the crucial role of Hund's rule coupling for the strongly correlated nature of the system and suggest that the iron-based superconductors are closer kin to manganites than cuprates in terms of their diverse magnetism and incoherent normal-state electron transport. Expand

TLDR
This observation provides direct evidence that the structural and magnetic transitions share the same origin and could both be driven by the electronic structure reconstruction in Fe-based superconductors instead of Fermi surface nesting. Expand
