Superconductivity and Magnetism in Ternary Rare-earth Compounds
Superconductivity and magnetism are two types of order that can take place in materials at low temperatures. When the magnetic order is ferromagnetic, a competition exists between magnetism and superconductivity. Neutron scattering has been used to measure the interaction of magnetism and superconductivity in a series of ternary rare-earth alloys. A wide range of behavior is found near the magnetic transition, including mean-field magnetic ordering, first-order transitions between magnetism and superconductivity, and co-existence of ferromagnetism and superconductivity with a sinusoidally-modulated magnetic phase.
