Superconductivity in noncentrosymmetric half-Heusler compound ErPdBi
Our recent publication on the superconducting and magnetic properties of ErPdBi has been published as Editor's choice in Europhysics Letters.
In our publication we find that the critical and neel temperatures approximately coincide. Therefore, the interaction of superconductivity and magnetism is expected to give rise to a complex ground state. Moreover, electronic-structure calculations show that ErPdBi has a topologically nontrivial band inversion and thus may serve as a new platform to study the interplay of topological states, superconductivity and magnetic order.
