    A simple qualitative explanation for the bell-shaped form of the functions T[sub c](n[sub f]) in solid C[sub 60] is proposed (T[sub c] is the critical temperature of the superconducting transition, and n[sub f] is the number of carriers (fermions)--electrons or holes--per molecule). This...

    The electronic states of the non-superconducting Li[sub 2]CsC[sub 60] and the superconducting Li[sub 3]CsC[sub 60] were studied by [sup 133]Cs-, [sup 7]Li- and [sup 13]C-NMR. The results were compared with those of other alkali(A)-doped C[sub 60] compounds, A[sub 3]C[sub 60]. We could not find...

    We study the electronic structure of body-centered-orthorhombic Ba[sub 4]C[sub 60] superconductor and Cs[sub 4]C[sub 60]. In both fullerides, it is found that the band structure is metallic and that the low symmetry of the lattice gives rise to the lifting of the threefold degeneracy of t[sub...

    The statistics of field electron emission (FEE) from structured carbon materials has been studied. Multiparticle FEE from fullerene-containing carbon has been observed. Analysis of the experimental data revealed correlations with the results of previous investigations of FEE in high-temperature...

    Rare-earth doped C[sub 60] fullerides (RE=Yb and Sm) are re-examined. It is clearly shown that RE[sub 2.75]C[sub 60] with superlattice structure, which so far believed to be the superconductor, is not superconducting. The possibility of the true superconducting phase is discussed with a...

    The dynamic and structural properties of the ammonia-doped superconducting fulleride (NH3)xNaK2C60 (0.5≤=x≤=1), well known for its anomalous decrease of transition temperature with doping, have been investigated using sodium and deuterium solid-state NMR techniques. The independence...
