A few points on iron-based superconductors
We highlight a few points on iron-based superconductors in this paper. Experimental evidence for intrinsic inhomogeneity and phase separation in Fe-based superconductors is reviewed first. The non-BCS feature and other similarities between the Fe-based superconductors and the cuprates are also presented. The pressure effect on the FeSe-based superconductors observed recently is then discussed in terms of the interplay between superconducting transition temperature and structural characters. It is suggested that there is room for exploring new superconductors with higher transition temperature and that the improvement on the sample quality is necessary for further investigation on the superconducting mechanism. âº Intrinsic inhomogeneity and phase separation in Fe-based superconductors are reviewed. âº Non-BCS feature of the FeAs-based superconductors is discussed. âº The pressure effect on the FeSe-based superconductors is discussed.
