Eteri Svanidze's Publications

  • Cluster-glass behavior induced by local moment doping in the itinerant ferromagnet Sc3.1In

    • August 14, 2013
    Authors: Eteri Svanidze

    In the presented work, Sc3.1In, a weak itinerant ferromagnet with no magnetic constituents, is doped with Er3+ local moment ions, to form (Sc1−xErx)3.1In. As x increases, the Weiss-like temperature θ stays positive and nearly triples up to x=0.10. Moreover, Er doping of as little as x=0.02 induces a cluster-glass state, which persists up to x=0.10, as evidenced by dc and ac susceptibility measurements, and confirmed by the Vogel-Fulcher analysis.

  • Type-I superconductivity in ScGa3 and LuGa3 single crystals

    • Phys. Rev. B
    • May 14, 2012

    We present evidence of type-I superconductivity in single crystals of ScGa3 and LuGa3, from magnetization, specific heat, and resistivity measurements: low critical temperatures Tc = 2.1–2.2 K; field-induced secondto first-order phase transition in the specific heat, critical fields less than 240 Oe; and low Ginzburg-Landau coefficients κ ≈0.23 and 0.30 for ScGa3 and LuGa3, respectively, are all traits of a type-I superconducting ground state. These observations render ScGa3 and LuGa3 two of only several type-I superconducting compounds, with most other superconductors being type II (compounds and alloys) or type I (elemental metals and metaloids).
