# The BCS Energy Gap at High Density

@inproceedings{Henheik2021TheBE, title={The BCS Energy Gap at High Density}, author={Joscha Henheik and Asbjorn Baekgaard Lauritsen}, year={2021} }

We study the BCS energy gap Ξ in the high–density limit and derive an asymptotic formula, which strongly depends on the strength of the interaction potential V on the Fermi surface. In combination with the recent result by one of us (arXiv:2106.02015) on the critical temperature Tc at high densities, we prove the universality of the ratio of the energy gap and the critical temperature.

Ubiquity of Superconducting Domes in the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer Theory with Finite-Range Potentials.

It is demonstrated that any well-defined nonlocal potential leads to a "superconducting dome," i.e., a nonmonotonic T_{c}(n) exhibiting a maximum value at finite doping and going to zero for large n, which proves that, contrary to conventional wisdom, the presence of a superconducting Dome is not necessarily an indication of competing orders, nor of exotic superconductivity.
