Are the stability and the superconductivity of alloys connected?

Condensed Matter


The electronic structure has a local stabilizing effect in metastable and amorphous phases. A model is given to explain the lower total energy in these cases. The DOS measurements confirm the role of the electronic structure in the stability. There is an explanation for the behaviour of the super-conducting transition temperature Tc under the pressure and at heat treatment.
