Essence of superconductivity; Factor that reduces the transition temperature at which material becomes superconducting.

    We examine the isotope effect in copper-oxygen high-T[sub c] superconductors using the model of polar Jahn-Teller centers, a variant of the local-boson model. The isotope-effect exponents for oxygen and copper depend on the structure of Jahn-Teller centers and its variation due to boson motion....

It is shown that the loss of superconductivity either leads to the formation of a finite region...

    High-T[sub c] superconductors are characterized by very low carrier densities. This feature leads to two fundamental consequences: on one hand the Fermi energies are correspondingly small and they can be of the same order of phonon frequencies. In such a situation nonadiabatic corrections...
