"Anisotropic reversible mixed-state properties of superconducting carbon-doped Mg(B1-xCx)2 single crystals";
Physical Review B,
We report on magnetic and torque measurements on carbon-doped Mg B1−xCx 2 single crystals with x
=0.038, 0.066, and 0.095. One-band Ginzburg Landau GL and London theories are applied to derive the
reversible parameters: i.e., the upper critical fields Hc2, the coherence lengths , the penetration depths , the
anisotropy , the lower critical fields Hc1, and the GL parameter for fields parallel and perpendicular to the
crystallographic ab plane. Due to the persistence of two-band superconductivity in the investigated doping
range, these parameters turn out to depend not only on temperature, as in the case of one-band superconductors,
but also on field. Therefore, the evaluation was carried out separately for two field regions: first for fields
near Hc1 and second close to Hc2. In general, the upper critical field increases and the anisotropy decreases
upon carbon doping. All further reversible parameters are significantly modified as well. These modifications
are compared for single crystals with different carbon concentration.
