Title:
Pressure Dependence of the Superconductivity in {{PuCoGa5}}
Abstract:
We report high-pressure resistivity measurements on a single crystal of PuCoGa5 using a Bridgman anvil cell with steatite pressure medium. As a function of pressure, the superconducting transition temperature Tc increases from its ambient pressure value of 18.5\textendash{}22K at 16.4GPa. The superconducting transition width increases, suggestive of a high sensitivity to the isotropy of the pressure medium. The stabilisation of the superconductivity over a very large pressure range contrasts unc...    »
