Kuvaus

Static and dynamic properties of superconducting alloys containing resonant impurity scattering centers are considered. The formation of bound states within the energy gap is described and connected with local d-level correlations induced by superconductivity. The effect of the bound states on the exactly soluble d-spin dynamics is investigated by evaluating the impurity atom's magnetic excitation spectrum. Finite impurity concentrations are treated within a self-consistent approximation scheme. For increasing impurity content the bound states merge to impurity bands which tend to suppress superconductivity. The relevance of the simple extra orbital model is discussed in connection with the interpretation of pressure-induced variations on the properties of superconductors alloyed with ambivalent rare earth ions.
