Order parameter effect critical fields and current of Y1–xPrx:123 superconductors

Open access

Abstract

Fluctuation induced conductivity by Pr substitution at Y sites of Y1-xPrx:123 superconductors is reported. It is found that the mean field temperature Tcmf, deduced from the peak of dρ/dT versus T plot, gradually decreases by increasing Pr up to 0.40. The order parameter dimensionality (OPD) is estimated from the slope of the logarithmic plot between excess conductivity Δσ and reduced temperature є. Interestingly, the crossover from 2D to 3D is obtained for samples with Pr = 0.00, 0.10 and 0.20, while with increasing Pr up to 0.40, the crossover from 0D to quasi-2D is obtained. On the other hand, the calculated values of interlayer coupling, coherence lengths, critical fields and critical current decrease with increasing Pr up to 0.20, but with the further increase of Pr, up to 0.40, they increase. The hole carriers/Cu ions anisotropy and G-L parameter gradually increase with Pr up to 0.40. Our results are discussed in terms of the effects of Pr substitution at Y site, such as oxygen rearrangements, anisotropy, hybridization and localization of holes in the overdoped region.
