Magnetism and Unconventional Heavy-Fermion Superconductivity
Los AlamosNational Laboratory
The possibility that unconventional superconductivity arises from an attractive interaction provided by magnetic fluctuations has emerged as a common theme in classes of materials, ranging from the high-Tc copper-oxides and iron-pnictides to heavy-fermion compounds. Among these classes of materials, heavy-fermion systemsare proving to be prototypes for exploring the relationship between magnetism and unconventional superconductivity. From the first example, CeCu2Si2, to the newer Ce115 compounds CeRhIn5 and CeCoIn5, there is growing evidence that magnetic fluctuations developing from a zero-temperature magnetic transition play an important role in mediating Cooper pairing as well as dominate their normal-state properties.
