Iron-based Superconductors

Materials, Properties and Mechanisms

edited by Nang Lin Wang, Hideo Hosono and Pengcheng Dai

"In February 2008, Dr Hosono and coworkers broke the striking news that they had found a new superconductor, LaFeAsO1–xFx with Tc = 26 K. This news immediately spread out in the world, and soon after its Tc was increased to 55 K. This breakthrough rekindled the superconducting research, which was in the state of a dying fire after the discovery of Cu oxide superconductor in 1988 and MgB2 in 2001. This book presents a comprehensive review on the present status of Fe-pnictide superconductors, including the material, a variety of experimental results (photoemission, neutron scattering, NMR, etc.), theory, and so forth."
