Title: Pressure-Induced Superconductivity in Quasi-2D CeRhIn{sub 5}

Abstract

CeRhIn{sub 5} is a new heavy-electron material that crystallizes in a quasi-2D structure that can be viewed as alternating layers of CeIn{sub 3} and RhIn{sub 2} stacked sequentially along the tetragonal c axis. Application of hydrostatic pressure induces a first-order-like transition from an unconventional antiferromagnetic state to a superconducting state with T{sub c}=2.1 K .
