Excess Conductivity Analysis of Polycrystalline FeSe Samples with the Addition of Ag

Abstract : Bulk FeSe superconductors of the iron-based (IBS) “11” family containing various additions of silver were thoroughly investigated concerning the microstructure using optical microscopy and electron microscopy (TEM and SEM). The measurements of electrical resistivity were performed through the four-point technique in the temperature interval T= 2–150 K. The Aslamazov–Larkin model was employed to analyze the fluctuation-induced conductivity (FIC) in all acquired measurements. In all studied products, we found that the FIC curves consist of five different regimes of fluctuation, viz. critical region (CR), three-dimensional (3D), two-dimensional (2D), one-dimensional (1D), and shortwave fluctuation (SWF) regimes. The critical current density (Jc), the lower and upper critical magnetic fields (Bc1 and Bc2), the coherence length along the c-axis at zero-temperature (ξc(0)), and further parameters were assessed with regards to the silver amount within the products. The analyses discloses a diminution in the resistivity and a great reduction in ξc(0) with Ag addition. The optimal silver doping amount is achieved for 7 wt.%, which yields the best superconducting transition and the greatest Jc value.
