A repulsive interaction model of superconductivity (SC) is studied for tight-binding models with three-fold degenerate molecular orbitals. Taking a weak-coupling approach, we derive dimensionless coupling constants for various symmetries of SC pairs. In addition to anisotropic SC pairs, the s-wave (\(A_{g}\)) pairing can also be formed. With the purely repulsive interaction, however, the \(A_{g}\) pair is not the most stable in both bcc and fcc lattices. The most stable SC pair for the bcc…

This study obtains a unified view of the high-Tc superconductivity and the Mott-Hubbard transition in the fullerides and demonstrates that the combination of density functional theory and dynamical mean field theory with the ab initio downfolding scheme for electron-phonon coupled systems works successfully.

In iron pnictides, the moderate electron-phonon interaction due to the Fe-ion oscillation can induce the critical d-orbital fluctuations, which give rise to the strong pairing interaction for the s-wave superconducting (SC) state without sign reversal (s(++)-wave state), consistent with experimentally observed robustness of superconductivity against impurities.

In Cs3C60, where the molecular valences are precisely assigned, the superconducting state at 38 kelvin emerges directly from a localized electron antiferromagnetic insulating state with the application of pressure, with a dependence of the transition temperature on pressure-induced changes of anion packing density that is not explicable by Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) theory.
