鉄系超伝導体LaFeAsO$$_{0.9}$$D$$_{0.1}$$の非弾性中性子散乱実験により、超伝導転移温度26K以下において、5-15meVのエネルギー領域に新しい励起が生じることを見出した。なお、この励起は母物質であるLaFeAsO$$_{0.9}$$F$$_{0.1}$$では現れない。14.5meVと11.1meVに現れる強い励起は水素の量子ラットリングまたはバンド運動に起因し、格子間サイトが2個以上のポテンシャル極小点を有する場合にのみ出現するものと結論付けた。

Inelastic neutron scattering was performed for an iron-based superconductor , where most of D (deuterium) replaces oxygen, while a tiny amount goes into interstitial sites. By first-principle calculation, we characterize the interstitial sites for D (and for H slightly mixed) with four equivalent potential minima. Below the superconducting transition temperature Tc = 26 K, new excitations emerge in the range 5-15 meV, while they are absent in the reference system LaFeAsO$$_{0.9}$$F$$_{0.1}$$. The strong excitations at 14.5 meV and 11.1 meV broaden rapidly around 15 K and 20 K, respectively, where each energy becomes comparable to twice of the superconducting gap. The strong excitations are ascribed to a quantum rattling, or a band motion of hydrogen, which arises only if the number of potential minima is larger than two.
