Cuprate superconductors have shaped the contemporary state of condensed matter physics. Recently, infinite-layer Nd-doped NiO${}_{2}$ nickelates have initiated a new era of unconventional superconductivity, of which this paper constitutes the first comprehensive theoretical analysis at weak and strong coupling. From a combined perspective of $a\phantom{\rule{0}{0ex}}b$ $i\phantom{\rule{0}{0ex}}n\phantom{\rule{0}{0ex}}i\phantom{\rule{0}{0ex}}t\phantom{\rule{0}{0ex}}i\phantom{\rule{0}{0ex}}o… Expand

Topotactic Hydrogen in Nickelate Superconductors and Akin Infinite-Layer Oxides ABO_{2}.
The topotactic H binding energy by density functional theory (DFT) is calculated and finds intercalating H to be energetically favorable for LaNiO_{2} but not for Sr-doped NdNiO_2, which might explain why some nickelates are superconducting and others are not. Expand
