Coexistence of Superconductivity and Magnetism
In the age of technology, with smaller and smaller electronic components being used in a growing number of applications, one pertinent application of mathematics and physics is the study of superconductivity. Superconductive materials are capable of conducting electricity without any resistance and were first discovered by Kamerlingh Onnes in 1911 in a compound He at 4.2 K in what was to prove to be one of the most significant scientific breakthroughs of the 20th Century. Superconductivity and Magnetism are mutually exclusive to each other but the coexistence of both the phenomena leads to very interesting research of superconductivity at room temperature. In this paper, we have studied the effect of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic interactions on the superconducting transition temperature.
