# Spin fluctuations and superconductivity in a 3D tight-binding model for BaFe2As2

@article{Graser2010SpinFA, title={Spin fluctuations and superconductivity in a 3D tight-binding model for BaFe2As2}, author={Siegfried Graser and Alexander F. Kemper and Thomas A. Maier and H.-P. Cheng and P. J. Hirschfeld and Douglas J. Scalapino}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2010}, volume={81}, pages={214503} }

Despite the wealth of experimental data on the Fe-pnictide compounds of the KFe2As2 type, K=Ba, Ca, or Sr, the main theoretical work based on multiorbital tight-binding models has been restricted so far to the study of the related 1111 compounds. This can be ascribed to the more three-dimensional electronic structure found by ab initio calculations for the 122 materials, making this system less amenable to model development. In addition, the more complicated Brillouin zone BZ of the body…

The almost perfect agreement between PCARS results at different pressures and theoretical predictions highlights the intimate connection between the changes in the lattice structure, a topological transition in the holelike Fermi surface sheet, and the emergence on the same sheet of an order parameter with a horizontal node line.
