The temperature dependence of the critical currents which characterizes the nonlinear microwave response of a thin-film cuprate superconductor is determined. It is proposed that a comparison of the temperature dependence of the third- and fifth-order intermodulation responses can provide evidence that the nonlinearity is intrinsic.

    From twenty years of experimental research, we can draw several conclusions that do not depend on any particular model of high-temperature superconductivity. With these in mind, it's time to assess the theoretical landscape, and wonder whether we have been asking the right questions.

    Pressure can tune material's electronic properties and control its quantum state, making some systems present disconnected superconducting region as observed in iron chalcogenides and heavy fermion CeCu2Si2. For CaC6 superconductor (Tc of 11.5 K), applying pressure first Tc increases and then...

    The interaction between superconductivity and ferromagnetism, which entails incompatible spin order, is one of the problems of fundamental interest in condensed-matter physics. In general, when a ferromagnet is placed in contact with a superconductor, the Cooper pairs from the superconductor are...

    The superconducting hole condensate of YBa2Cu3O7 resides in its BaO layers, and involves s-wave paired holes. This picture differs from the currently widespread opinion that the superconductivity at the surface and in the bulk is d-like, and resides in the CuO2 planes: it is the main reason why...

    The search for the coexistence between superconductivity and other collective electronic states in many instances promoted the discovery of novel states of matter. The manner in which the different types of electronic order combine remains an ongoing puzzle. 1T-TaS2 is a layered material, and...
