Isoelectronic Ru substitution at the iron site in SmFe1−xRuxAsO0.85F0.15 and its effects on structural, superconducting, and normal-state properties. In: Physical Review B, vol. 81 (18) article n. 184504. APS, 2010.
In this work we present a systematic experimental and theoretical study of the structural, transport, and superconducting properties of Sm(Fe1−xRux)As(O0.85F0.15) polycrystalline samples as a function of Ru content (x) ranging from 0 to 1. The choice of Ru as isoelectronic substitution at Fe site of F-doped compounds allows to better clarify the role of structural disorder in modifying the normal and superconducting properties of these recently discovered multiband superconductors. Two different regions are identified: the Fe-rich phase (x<0.5) where superconducting and normal-state properties are strongly affected by disorder induced by Ru substitution; the Ru-rich phase (x>0.5) where the system is metallic and strongly compensated and the presence of Ru frustrates the magnetic moment on Fe ions. Here the lack of magnetic features and related spin fluctuations may be the cause for the suppression of superconductivity.
