Title: Kondo Physics and Unconventional Superconductivity in the U Intermetallic U2PtC2 Revealed by NMR

The set of slides begins by discussing the topic NMR of heavy fermion superconductors under the topics heavy fermion materials, superconductivity, and nuclear magnetic resonance. The history of these phenomena is sketched, with particular mention made of CeCu2Si2, UPt3, and UBe13. Unconventional superconductivity, which is non-phonon mediated superconductivity, presents a high Tc (up to ~150 K), and involves a more complicated spin/orbital wave function. The presentation then goes on to give experimental NMR results for U2PtC2 and Pu-115’s.
