Title: Localization and Hopping Conduction in the Sn-doped (Bi, Pb)2Sr Ca2Cu20y System
Authors: Nkum, Robert Kwame
Issue Date: 7-Sep-2011
Abstract: The effect of Sn substitution for Cu on the. properties of the Bi1.7 Pbo.3Sr2Ca2- Cu3.6.s-xSnxOy system has been investigated. The concentration of free charge carri- ers decreases with Sn-doping which results in a suppression of the transition temper- ature. Disorder in the system increases with Sn concentration. Conduction merit- anism in the scmie. nducting samples of the systems governed by phonon-assisted veriable range hopping, the dimensionality of which changes from two to three as the normal-state resistivity increases away from the superconductor-insulator boundary. Heppitig-conduction in these materials indicates that the substitution of Sn results the localization of charge carriers in the system.
