A Functional Renormalization Group Study of Pairing Symmetry and Pairing Mechanism of the FeAs Based High Temperature Superconductors

Reference: Fa Wang et. al., arXiv: 0807.0498

Abstract from the paper: "We apply the fermion functional renormalization group method to determine the pairing symmetry and pairing mechanism of the FeAs-Based materials. Within a five band model with pure repulsive interactions, we find an electronic-driven superconducting pairing instability. For the doping and interaction parameters we have examined, extended s-wave, whose order parameter takes on opposite sign on the electron and hole pockets, is always the most favorable pairing symmetry. The pairing mechanism is the inter Fermi surface Josephson scattering generated by the antiferromagnetic correlation."
