  Title Doping-dependent nonlinear Meissner effect and spontaneous currents in high-Tc superconductors Type Journal Article
  Year 2005 Publication Physical Review B – Condensed Matter and Materials Physics Abbreviated Journal Phys. Rev. B Condens. Matter Mater. Phys.  
  Volume 71 Issue 1 Pages  
  Keywords article; electric current; film; magnetic field; magnetism; microwave radiation; nonlinear system; parameter; superconductor; temperature dependence  
  Abstract We measure the local harmonic generation from superconducting thin films at microwave frequencies to investigate the intrinsic nonlinear Meissner effect near Tc in the zero magnetic field. Both second and third harmonic generation are measured to identify time-reversal symmetry breaking (TRSB) and time-reversal symmetric (TRS) nonlinearities. We perform a systematic doping-dependent study of the nonlinear response and find that the TRS characteristic nonlinearity current density scale follows the doping dependence of the depairing critical current density. We also extract a spontaneous TRSB characteristic current density scale that onsets at Tc, grows with decreasing temperature, and systematically decreases in magnitude (at fixed T/TC) with underdoping. The origin of this current scale could be Josephson circulating currents or the spontaneous magnetization associated with a TRSB order parameter.

  Title Bose-glass-like phases in oriented-twin YBa2Cu3O7-? crystals Type Journal Article
  Year 2004 Publication Journal of Low Temperature Physics Abbreviated Journal J. Low Temp. Phys.  
  Volume 135 Issue 1-2 Pages 131-134  
  Keywords Low temperature effects; Magnetic fields; Superconducting materials; Bose-glass phases; Planar random defect array; Yttrium barium copper oxides; physics  
  Abstract We experimentally study the dynamical response of the superconducting vortex system near the solid-liquid transition by applying forces parallel and perpendicular to a planar random defect array. Our results show that for magnetic fields above a certain critical field Hcr'? 4 T the solid glassy vortex phase in YBa2Cu3O7-? crystals with oriented twin planes does not correspond to the so-called Bose-glass phase.

  Abstract Experiments were carried out to probe the underdoped insulating material by the Josephson effect. Junctions were fabricated by exploiting the capability of locally photodoping insulating RBa2Cu3O6+x (R = rare earth) material. The existence of an anomalously large proximity effect was confirmed. The critical current of the junctions was consisted with the conventional Josephson relationship.

  Title Inducing superconductivity at a nanoscale: Photodoping with a near- field scanning optical microscope Type Journal Article
  Year 1999 Publication Journal of Microscopy Abbreviated Journal J. Microsc.  
  Volume 194 Issue 2-3 Pages 407-411  
  Keywords High critical temperature superconductors; Near-field microscopy; Photoconductivity; Photoinduced superconductivity; barium; copper derivative; gadolinium; nanoparticle; conductance; conference paper; crystal structure; crystallography; density; fiber optics; film; illumination; magnetic field; photoactivation; priority journal; reflectometry; scanning near field optical microscopy; temperature  
  Abstract The local modification of an insulating GdBa2Cu3O6.5 thin film, made superconducting by illumination with a near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM), is reported. A 100-nm aperture NSOM probe acts as a sub- wavelength light source of wavelength ?(exc)=480-650 nm, locally generating photocarriers in an otherwise insulating GdBa2-Cu3O6.5 thin film. Of the photogenerated electron-hole pairs, electrons are trapped in the crystallographic lattice, defining an electrostatic confining potential to enable the holes to move. Reflectance measurements at ? = 1.55 ?m at room temperature show that photocarriers can be induced and constrained to move on a ?? 200 nm scale for all investigated ?(exc). Photogenerated wires present a superconducting critical temperature T(c) = 12 K with a critical current density J(c) = 104 A cm-2. Exploiting the flexibility provided by photodoping through a NSOM probe, a junction was written by photodoping a wire with a narrow (? 50 nm) under-illuminated gap. The strong magnetic field modulation of the critical current provides a clear signature of the existence of a Josephson effect in the junction.

  Title The magnetic moment relaxation in oxygen-deficient YBa2Cu3Ox Type Journal Article
  Year 1992 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl

  Keywords Magnetic Measurements – Relaxation; Oxygen – Concentration; Relaxation Processes – High Temperature Effects; Relaxation Processes – Magnetic Field Effects; Magnetic Moment Relaxation; Oxygen Deficiency; Yttrium Barium Copper Oxides; High Temperature Superconductors  
  Abstract The magnetic moment relaxation in polycrystalline YBa2Cu3Oxmaterial has been studied using zero-field-cooled measurements. The temperature dependence of the relaxation rate shows a field-dependent maximum. When the oxygen content is reduced, the maximum shifts towards lower temperatures. This shift is directly related to a decrease of the intragrain critical current density in the oxygen-deficient material, inducing a decrease of the field H* for complete flux penetration. The characteristic activation energies for depinning in the oxygen-deficient material are below 20 meV.

  Year 1994 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl

  Keywords Anisotropy; Copper oxides; High temperature superconductors; Lanthanum compounds; Magnetic field effects; Niobium compounds; Oscillators (mechanical); Phase transitions; Superconductivity; Thickness measurement; Angular dependence; Ginzburg Landau theory; Pinning; Crystal lattices  
  Abstract Measurement of the response of the flux-line lattice in NbSe2 and La1.825Sr0.075CuO4 show important differences between these two materials. In particular, we have studied the magnetic-field and angular dependence of the response of a high-Q mechanical oscillator in fields of up to 1 T. The features seen in NbSe2 seem to be well explained in terms of a change in the pinning regime, usually termed the “peak effect” in the critical current, using the collective-pinning model of Larkin and Ovchivnikov within Ginzburg-Landau anisotropic theory. On the other hand the behavior found in the high-Tc material LSCO seems to fall naturally into a description which takes into account the possibility of phase transitions in the vortex lattice and the quasi-two-dimensional character of the superconductivity.

  Title Low temperature thermopower and magnetoresistance of Sc-rich CeSc1-xTixGe Type Journal Article
  Year 2018 Publication Physica B: Condensed Matter Abbreviated Journal Physica B  
  Volume 536 Issue Pages 133-136  
  Keywords CeScGe; CeTiGe; Antiferromagnetism; Transport properties; Low temperatures; Magnetic field  
  Abstract In CeSc1-xTixGe, Ti-alloying reduces the record-high antiferromagnetic (AFM) ordering temperature found in CeScGe at TN=46K and induces ferromagnetism for x≥0.5. In this work we focus on the AFM side, i.e. Sc-rich samples, and study their thermopower S(T) and magnetoresistance ρ(H,T). The measured S(T) is small in comparison with the thermopower of other Ce-systems and shows some features that are compatible with a weak hybridization between the 4f and band states. This is a further hint pointing to the local character of magnetism in this alloy. Magnetic fields up to 16T have a minor effect on the electrical resistivity of stoichiometric CeScGe. On the other hand, for x=0.65, we find that fields above 4T suppress the hump in ρ(T). Furthermore, the 4.2K magnetoresistance displays a strong decrease in the same field range, also in coincidence with magnetization results from the literature. Our results indicate that ρ(T,H) is a proper tool to assess the H−T phase diagram of this system.
