Tuning of superconductivity by Ni substitution into noncentrosymmetric ThCo1−xNixC2

Tuning of superconductivity by Ni substitution into noncentrosymmetric ThCo1−xNixC2 The recently discovered noncentrosymmetric superconductor ThCoC2 was observed to show unusual superconducting behavior with a critical temperature of Tc=2.65K. Here we investigate the effect of nickel substitution on the superconducting state in ThCo1−xNixC2. Magnetization, resistivity, and heat capacity measurements demonstrate Ni substitution has a dramatic effect with critical temperature increased up to Tc=12.1 K for x=0.4 Ni concentration, which is a rather high transition temperature for a noncentrosymmetric superconductor. In addition, the unusual superconducting characteristics observed in pure ThCoC2 appear to be suppressed or tuned with Ni substitution towards a more conventional fully gapped superconductor. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review B American Physical Society (APS)
