Tunneling spectroscopy of heavily underdoped crystals of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8-δ
Crystals of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ with optimal Tc=95 K have been underdoped using two different methods and the superconducting gaps have been obtained by tunneling. In some cases, three different tunneling geometries have been ...
Absence of pseudogap in heavily overdoped Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ from tunneling spectroscopy of break junctions
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2002-05)
We report tunneling spectroscopy of superconductor-insulator-superconductor break junctions on heavily overdoped Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ with Tc = 56 K. At T ≪ Tc, the junction conductances display well-defined quasiparticle peaks ...
High energy secondary peak structure in tunneling spectra (hump) as possible magnetic pseudogap
It is demonstrated that tunneling spectra in various high Tc cuprates display generic features. The principal conductance peaks in superconductor-insulator-normal metal (SIN) junctions indicate the superconducting gap in ...
Superconducting gap and pseudogap from tunneling conductance on Bi2Sr2CaCu2Og+δ with various oxygen concentration
The evolution of tunneling spectra on Bi2Sr2CaCu2Og+δ measured by SIN point contacts, SIS break junctions and STM/STS has been studied as a function of doping and temperature. The detailed examinations of the spectra show ...
Large energy gaps in Ca C6 from tunneling spectroscopy: Possible evidence of strong-coupling superconductivity
(American Physical Society, 2007-12)
Tunneling in Ca C6 crystals reproducibly reveals superconducting gaps Δ of 2.3±0.2 meV that are ∼40% larger than reported earlier. In an isotropic s -wave scenario, that puts Ca C6 into the class of very strongly coupled ...
