By Shin-ichi Uchida

This publication provides an summary of material-specific components that impact Tc and provides upward thrust to assorted Tc values for copper oxides and iron-based high- Tc superconductors at the foundation of greater than 25 years of experimental facts, to such a lot of which the writer has made very important contributions. The booklet then explains why either compounds are detailed from others with related crystal constitution and even if you can still improve Tc, which in flip provides a touch at the unresolved pairing mechanism. this can be an exceptional new method of the matter of high-temperature superconductivity and therefore should be inspiring to either experts and non-specialists drawn to this box.

Readers will obtain in-depth details at the previous, current, and way forward for high-temperature superconductors, in addition to distinctive, up to date info on what the genuine maximum Tc values are and especially at the probability of improving Tc for every member fabric, that's very important for program. at present, the top Tc has now not been more advantageous for two decades, and no new superconductors were came across for five years. This publication will motivate researchers in addition to graduate-course scholars to not hand over at the demanding situations sooner or later of high- Tc superconductivity.

It is a Mott insulator due to strong electronic correlations. In this regard, it is an “electron” version of La2CuO4 (3d 9). Therefore, the conditions from (1), (2), and (4) are fulfilled in this compound. However, the lowest 3d levels, dxz and dyz, are degenerate in energy in a tetragonal lattice which makes the vanadate a multiband system. In addition, since V is near the other end of the 3d transition metal series, the V3d energy levels are significantly lower than the O2p levels. Probably because of these two differences, the vanadate remains insulating even when it is doped [15].

The spin order disappears in YBCO, but coexists in La2 − xBaxCuO4 (LBCO). The stripe charge order is a fairly longrange order, and is accompanied by the spin order in the La-based cuprates. 16 where the charge order is observed [29, 30]. Charge excitations in this regime continue to be gapless, while spin excitations are gapped. The x-ray scattering experiments find an onset of static and short-range CO (or CDW correlations) at T Conset = 100–160 K, possibly due to the pinning of fluctuating CO by defects.

This is radically different from that in conventional superconductors and seems to be difficult to understand in the framework of the Migdal–Eliashberg theory in which most relevant parameter controlling Tc is the superconducting gap magnitude or the electron-boson coupling strength λ. The 18O isotope substitution reduces Tc in the underdoped regime. This appears to be the ‘normal’ isotope effect in conventional superconductors, since the 18O substitution decreases the frequencies of the oxygen phonon modes.
