Title: Pressure tuning of structure, superconductivity, and novel magnetic order in the Ce-underdoped electron-doped cuprate T ' - Pr 1.3 - x La 0.7 Ce x CuO 4 ( x = 0.1 )

Abstract

High-pressure neutron powder diffraction, muon-spin rotation, and magnetization studies of the structural, magnetic, and the superconducting properties of the Ce-underdoped superconducting (SC) electron-doped cuprate system with the Nd 2 CuO 4 (the so-called T ' ) structure T ' - Pr 1.3 - x La 0.7 Ce x CuO 4 with x = 0.1 are reported. A strong reduction of the in-plane and out-of-plane lattice constants is observed under pressure. However, no indication of any pressure-induced phase transition from T ' to the K 2 NiF 4 (the so-called T) structure is observed up to the maximum applied pressure of p = 11 GPa. Large and nonlinear increase of the short-range magnetic order temperature T so in T ' - Pr 1.3 - x La 0.7 Ce x CuO 4 ( x = 0.1 ) was observed under pressure. Simultaneous pressure causes a nonlinear decrease of the SC transition temperature T c . All these experiments establish the short-range magnetic order as an intrinsic and competing phase in SC T ' - Pr 1.3 - x La 0.7 Ce x CuO 4 ( x = 0.1 ). The observed pressure effects may be interpreted in terms of the improved nestingmore » conditions through the reduction of the in-plane and out-of-plane lattice constants upon hydrostatic pressure.« less
