Phase diagram of UCoGe
Date/Time: 10:10 26-Jun-2017
The temperature-pressure phase diagram of ferromagnetic superconductor UCoGe includes four phase transitions. They are between the paramagnetic and the ferromagnetic states with the subsequent transition in the superconducting ferromagnetic state and between the normal and the superconducting states after which has to occur the transition to the superconducting ferromagnetic state. Here we have developed the Landau theory description of the phase diagram and established the specific ordering arising at each type of transition.
The phase transitions to the ferromagnetic superconducting state are inevitably accompanied by the emergency of screening currents. The corresponding magnetostatics considerations allow to establish the significant difference between the transition from the ferromagnetic to the ferromagnetic superconducting state and the transition from the superconducting to the ferromagnetic superconducting state.
