  • We report comprehensive 77 Se NMR measurements on a single crystalline sample of the recently discovered FeSe-based high-temperature superconductor K x Fe 2 - y Se 2 ( T c = 33 K) in a broad temperature range up to 290 K. Despite deviations from the stoichiometric KFe 2 Se 2 composition, we observed 77 Se NMR line shapes as narrow as 4.5 kHz under a magnetic field applied along the crystal c axis, and found no evidence for co-existence of magnetic order with superconductivity. On the other hand, the 77 Se NMR line shape splits into two peaks withmore » equal intensities at all temperatures when we apply the magnetic field along the ab plane. This suggests that K vacancies may have a superstructure and that the local symmetry of the Se sites is lower than the tetragonal fourfold symmetry of the average structure. This effect might be a prerequisite for stabilizing the s ± symmetry of superconductivity in the absence of the hole bands at the Brillouin zone center. From the increase of NMR linewidth below T c induced by the Abrikosov lattice of superconducting vortices, we estimate the in-plane penetration depth λ ab ~ 290 nm and the carrier concentration n e ~ 1 × 10 + 21 cm - 3 . Our Knight shift 77 K data indicate that the uniform spin susceptibility decreases progressively with temperature, in analogy with the case of FeSe ( T c ~ 9 K) as well as other FeAs high- T c systems. The strong suppression of 77 K observed immediately below T c for all crystal orientations is consistent with a singlet pairing of Cooper pairs. We do not however observe the Hebel-Slichter coherence peak of the nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate 1 / T 1 immediately below T c , expected for conventional BCS s-wave superconductors. In contrast with the case of FeSe, we do not observe evidence for an enhancement of low-frequency antiferromagnetic spin fluctuations near T c in 1 / T 1 T . Instead, 1 / T 1 T exhibits qualitatively the same behavior as overdoped non-superconducting Ba(Fe 1 - x Co x ) 2 As 2 with x ~ 0 . 14 or greater, where hole bands are missing in the Brillouin zone center. We will discuss the implications of our results on the unknown mechanism of high-temperature superconductivity in FeSe and FeAs systems.« less
  • The electronic structural and phonon properties of Na 2-αM αZrO 3 (M ¼ Li,K, α = ¼ 0.0,0.5,1.0,1.5,2.0) are investigated by first-principles density-functional theory and phonon dynamics. The thermodynamic properties of CO 2 absorption and desorption in these materials are also analyzed. With increasing doping level α, the binding energies of Na 2-αLi αZrO 3 are increased while the binding energies of Na 2-α K αZrO 3 are decreased to destabilize the structures. The calculated band structures and density of states also show that, at the same doping level, the doping sites play a significant role in the electronic properties.more » The phonon dispersion results show that few soft modes are found in several doped configurations, which indicates that these structures are less stable than other configurations with different doping levels. From the calculated relationships among the chemical-potential change, the CO 2 pressure, and the temperature of the CO 2 capture reactions by Na 2-αM αZrO 3, and from thermogravimetric-analysis experimental measurements, the Li- and K-doped mixtures Na 2-αM αZrO 3 have lower turnover temperatures (T t) and higher CO 2 capture capacities, compared to pure Na 2ZrO 3. The Li-doped systems have a larger T t decrease than the K-doped systems. When increasing the Li-doping level α, the T t of the corresponding mixture Na 2-αLi αZrO 3 decreases further to a low-temperature range. However, in the case of K-doped systems Na 2-αK αZrO 3, although doping K into Na 2ZrO 3 initially shifts its T t to lower temperatures, further increases of the K-doping level α causes T t to increase. Therefore, doping Li into Na 2ZrO 3 has a larger influence on its CO 2 capture performance than the K-doped Na 2ZrO 3. Compared with pure solidsM 2ZrO 3, after doping with other elements, these doped systems’ CO 2 capture performances are improved.« less
