Title: High pressure low temperature studies on 1-2-2 iron-based superconductors using designer diamond cells

Abstract

In this study, high pressure low temperature electrical resistance measurements were carried out on a series of 122 iron-based superconductors using a designer diamond anvil cell. These studies were complemented by image plate x-ray diffraction measurements under high pressures and low temperatures at beamline 16-BM-D, HPCAT, Advanced Photon Source. A common feature of the 1-2-2 iron-based materials is the observation of anomalous compressibility effects under pressure and a Tetragonal (T) to Collapsed Tetragonal (CT) phase transition under high pressures. Specific studies on antiferromagnetic spin-density-wave Ba 0.5Sr 0.5Fe 2As 2 and Ba(Fe 0.9Ru 0.1) 2As 2 samples are presented to 10 K and 41 GPa. The collapsed tetragonal phase was observed at a pressure of 14 GPa in Ba 0.5Sr 0.5Fe 2As 2 at ambient temperature. The highest superconducting transition temperature in Ba 0.5Sr 0.5Fe 2As 2 was observed to be at 32 K at a pressure of 4.7 GPa. The superconductivity was observed to be suppressed on transformation to the CT phase in 122 materials.
