|Title:||Transport Critical Current Measurements On A Cu-substituted Bafe 2as2 Superconductor|
|Abstract:||The critical current density Jc is a crucial parameter to establish the actual technological potential of a superconducting (SC) material. Furthermore, being proportional to the SC gap parameter, it can reveal important information about the microscopic nature of the SC state in a given material. The FeAs-based class of SC materials has been a focus of intense scientific investigation lately, but direct investigation of Jc by transport measurements is rather scarce in literature. For these materials, it is very interesting to map Jc as a function of their distinct SC tuning parameters such as applied pressure and chemical substitution. In this work, detailed investigation of the field, temperature, and pressure dependences of transport critical current density Jc for Cu-substituted BaFe2As2 single crystals is reported. In this particular material, Cu-substitution has a strong magnetic pair breaking effect. However, with increasing pressure, this sample shows an almost twofold increase of T c, from 3.2K to 6.9K, which is followed by an increase in J c. These observations are discussed considering the presence of magnetic pinning centers in the Fe-As plane, which, in principle, could suggest effective routes to increase Jc in the this class of materials. © 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.|
