The exotic (probably odd parity) superconductivity in Sr_2Ru O4 is thought to be mediated by spin fluctuations arising from proximity to such a critical point.Theories for superconductivity based on such a mechanism In recent years, magnetic and transport properties of the layered perovskite Ca_2Ru O4 at ambient pressure have been reported.In polycrystalline HTSCs, transport measurements can be used for determining the density of the intergrain critical current, which is several orders of magnitude lower than J c for single-crystalline samples .
The disorder in the electron and boson subsystem has been taken into account.
It strongly modifies the superconducting properties and leads to local variations of the gap parameter and density of states.
The assumption that the impurities mainly modify boson energies offers a natural explanation of the puzzling positive correlation between the positions of impurities and the values of the order parameter found in the scanning tunneling microscopy experiments.
Important insight into the relationship between magnetism and superconductivity has been obtained through experiments on systems near to magnetic quantum critical points (magnetic phase transitions at absolute zero). more Important insight into the relationship between magnetism and superconductivity has been obtained through experiments on systems near to magnetic quantum critical points (magnetic phase transitions at absolute zero).
The corresponding expression (Bean's formula) is widely used to find J c from the results of magnetic measurements as The two-component model of high temperature superconductors in its real space version has been solved using Bogoliubov–de Gennes equations.
