Strong peak in Tc of Sr2RuO4 under uniaxial pressure

Abstract:

We report a combined experimental and theoretical study of the dependence of the superconductivity of the unconventional superconductor Sr2RuO4 on anisotropic strain. Novel piezoelectric apparatus is used to apply uniaxial pressures of up to ∼1 GPa along a h100i direction (a-axis) of the crystal lattice. Tc increases from 1.5 K in unstrained material to 3.4 K at compression by ≈0.6%, then falls steeply. The c-axis upper critical field for the strained Tc = 3.4 K material is a factor of twenty...
