Synthesis of Low-Temperature Stable Superconducting A15 Compounds in the Niobium System
The fact that niobium has the highest superconducting temperature among all the elements in their normal state, and its presence among those compounds with highest T c ,inspired us to investigate the β-W phases in the different systems of the element. In our search for high superconducting binary alloys we have investigated the Nb-Ge, Nb-Ga, and Nb-Si systems.
