Abstract [en]

We report on the specific-heat determination of the anisotropic phase diagram of single crystals of optimally doped SmFeAsO(1-x)F(x). In zero field, we find a clear cusplike anomaly in C/T with Delta C/T(c) = 24 mJ/mol K(2) at T(c) = 49.5 K. In magnetic fields along the c axis, pronounced superconducting fluctuations induce broadening and suppression of the specific-heat anomaly which can be described using three-dimensional lowest-Landau-level scaling with an upper critical field slope of -3.5 T/K and an anisotropy of Gamma = 8. The small value of Delta C/T(c) yields a Sommerfeld coefficient gamma similar to 8 mJ/mol K(2), indicating that SmFeAsO(1-x)F(x) is characterized by a modest density of states and strong coupling.
