Lederman, D., E. Osquiguil, G. Nieva, J. Guimpel, J. Hasen, Y. Bruynseraede, and I. K. Schuller. "Photoinduced enhancement of superconductivity." Journal of Superconductivity 7, no. 1 (1994): 127–130.
Abstract: The photoinduced enhancement of superconductivity in RBa2Cu3Ox (R=rare earth or yttrium) and PryR1-yBa2Cu3Ox was explored through temperature-dependent resistivity, Hall coefficient and mobility, and x-ray diffraction measurements. The increases in Tc are enhanced near the metal-insulator transition, although photoinduced changes always exist in oxygendeficient samples. Several explanations, including intergrain Josephson coupling, photoassisted oxygen ordering, and the trapping of photogenerated electrons in oxygen vacancies, are discussed.
