1998 (English)In: Physica. C, Superconductivity, ISSN 0921-4534, Vol. 300, 67-70 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A new low-temperature superconducting (Tc≈3 K) niobium sulfide ‘EuNb2S5' with a hexagonal structure (a=3.3556(8) Å, c=23.440(9) Å) was synthesized from a mixture of EuS, Nb(m) and S in evacuated and sealed silica tubes, heated at 1100°C for 48 h. This superconductor was characterized by EDX analysis, X-ray powder and electron diffraction studies. Electron diffraction revealed the presence of a supercell: asuper=bsuper=√7×a.
