Title: Pressure-induced shift of T c and structural transition in “122” type pnictide superconductor Ca 0.34Na 0.66Fe 2As 2

Here, the effect of pressure on superconductivity of “122” type Ca 1-xNa xFe 2As 2 (x=0.66 single crystal is investigated through the temperature dependence of resistanc measurement. Optimal Na doped (Ca 0.34Na 0.66)Fe 2As 2 shows a superconductin transition with T c ~ 33 K at ambient pressure. With application of pressure, T decreases nearly linearly with d Tc/d P ~ -1.7K/GPa at pressures lower than 2 GPa and disappears gradually at higher pressure. The disappearance of superconductivit is also companied with the recovery of standard Fermi liquid behaviors of th normal-state transport properties. Moreover, (Ca 0.34Na 0.66)Fe 2As 2 exhibits a tetragona (T) to collapsed-tetragonal (c T) transition at about 3 GPa. The evolution o non-Fermi liquid behaviors and superconductivity under pressure are both relate to the interband fluctuations.
