We have investigated the charge dynamics and the nature of many-body interactions in La- and Pr- doped CaFe2As2. From the infrared part of the optical conductivity, we discover that the scattering rate of mobile carriers above 200 K exhibits saturation at the Mott-Ioffe-Regel limit of metallic transport. However, the dc resistivity continues to increase with temperature above 200 K due to the loss of Drude spectral weight. The loss of Drude spectral weight with increasing temperature is seen in…

Strong electron-boson coupling in the iron-based superconductor BaFe1.9Pt0.1As2 revealed by infrared spectroscopy

Understanding the formation of Cooper pairs in iron-based superconductors is one of the most important topics in condensed matter physics. In conventional superconductors, the electron-phonon

Shining Light On The Phase Transitions Of Vanadium Dioxide

The salient feature of the familiar structural transition accompanying the thermally-driven metal-insulator transition in bulk vanadium dioxide (VO2) is a pairing of all the vanadium ions in the

Light Induced Electron-Phonon Scattering Mediated Resistive Switching in Nanostructured Nb Thin Film Superconductor

It is demonstrated here that nanostructured Nb thin films (NNFs), under optical illumination, behave as room temperature photo-switches and exhibit bolometric features below its superconducting critical temperature.

Is it possible to stabilize the 1144-phase pnictides with tri-valence cations?

The 1144 iron arsenide (e.g. CaKFe4As4) has recently been discovered and inspired a tide of search for superconductors. Such far, the discovered compounds are confined to iron arsenides (ABFe4As4),

Substrate Mediated Synthesis of Ti–Si–N Nano‐and‐Micro Structures for Optoelectronic Applications

Being one of the strongest materials, ternary TiSiN exhibits a very interesting family of binary transition metal nitride and silicide systems. A novel technique to fabricate morphologically

Electronic correlations and absence of superconductivity in the collapsed phase of LaFe2As2

The interplay between structural phase and electronic correlations has been an intriguing topic of research. A prominent example is the pressure-induced uncollapsed to collapsed tetragonal phase

Superconducting properties of tin-based ENZ and hyperbolic metamaterials

Optical and hidden transport properties of BaFe1.91Ni0.09As2film.

Optical spectroscopy was used to study the electrodynamics and hidden transport properties of a BaFe1.91Ni0.09As2thin superconducting film and shows a hidden Fermi-liquid behavior.
