Title: Theoretical Study of Superconducting Gap Parameters, Density of States, and Condensation Energy of Two-Band Iron-Based Superconductor BaFe{sub 2}(As{sub 1−x}P{sub x}){sub 2}

Abstract

This research work focuses on the theoretical study of superconducting gap parameters, density of states, and condensation energy of two-band iron-based superconductor BaFe{sub 2}(As{sub 1−x}P{sub x}){sub 2}. By developing a model Hamiltonian for the given system and by using the double time temperature-dependent Green’s function formalism, we obtained mathematical expressions for superconducting order parameters for the electron intra-band (Δ{sub e}), hole intra-band (Δ{sub h}), inter-band between the two bands (Δ{sub eh}) and superconducting transition temperature (T{sub C}). Furthermore, we obtained the density of states for each intra-band, N(ε) and condensation energy (E{sub c}) for BaFe{sub 2}(As{sub 1−x}P{sub x}){sub 2}. By using the experimental values and by considering some plausible approximations of the parameters in the obtained expressions, phase diagrams of superconducting order parameters for Δ{sub e}, Δ{sub h}, and Δ{sub eh} versus temperature and superconducting transition temperature (T{sub C}) versus the inter-band pairing potential (V{sub eh}) are plotted. We also plotted the density of states for the electron intra-band, N{sub e}(ε) and hole intra-band, N{sub h}(ε) versus excitation energy (ε) at T = 0K, and the variation of density of states with temperature. Similarly, phase diagrams of condensation energy (E{sub c}) versus temperature, inter-band pairing potential, and superconducting transition temperaturemore » are plotted for the material. Our results are in agreement with previous findings.« less
