The solubility of Ba(SeO$$_{4}$$, SO$$_{4}$$) precipitates was determined as a function of the BaSeO$$_{4}$$ mole fractions, ranging from 0.0015 to 0.3830, and time with an equilibration period extending to as long as 302 days. Equilibrium/steady state conditions in this system are reached in $$leq$$ 65 days. Pitzer's ion interaction model was used to calculate solid and aqueous phase activity coefficients. Thermodynamic analyses showed that the data do not satisfy Gibbs-Duhem equation, thereby demonstrating that a single-solid solution phase does not control both the selenate and sulfate concentrations. Our extensive data with [Ba], [SeO$$_{4}$$], and [SO$$_{4}$$] can be explained with the formation of an ideal BaSeO$$_{4}$$ solid solution phase that controls the selenium concentrations and a slightly disordered/less-crystalline BaSO$$_{4}$$(s) that controls the sulfate concentrations. In these experiments the BaSO$$_{4}$$ component of the solid solution phase never reaches thermodynamic equilibrium with the aqueous phase. Thermodynamic interpretations of the data show that both the ideal BaSeO$$_{4}$$ solid solution phase and less-crystalline BaSO$$_{4}$$(s) phase are in equilibrium with each other in the entire range of BaSeO$$_{4}$$ mole fractions investigated in this study.

Thermodynamic model for the solubility of BaSeO$$_{4}$$(cr) in the aqueous Ba$$^{2+}$$-SeO$$_{4}$$$$^{2-}$$-Na$$^{+}$$-H$$^{+}$$-OH$$^{-}$$-H$$_{2}$$O system; Extending to high selenate concentrations

The aqueous solubility of BaSeO$$_{4}$$(cr) was studied in Na$$_{2}$$SeO$$_{4}$$ solutions ranging in concentration from 0.0001 to 4.1 mol.kg$$^{-1}$$ and maintained in a N$$_{2}$$ atmosphere at room temperature (296 $$pm$$ 2 K). The studies were conducted from both the undersaturation and oversaturation directions, with equilibration periods ranging from 3 to 596 days. The equilibrium in this system was reached rather rapidly ($$leq$$ 3 days). The SIT and Pitzer's ion-interaction models were used to interpret these data and the predictions based on both of these models agreed closely with the experimental data.

We have performed an angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) study of the iron-based superconductor PrFeAsO$$_{0.7}$$ and examined the Fermi surfaces and band dispersions near the fermi level. Heavily hole-doped electronic states have been observed due to the polar nature of the cleaved surfaces. Nevertheless, we have found that the ARPES spectra basically agree with band dispersions calculated in the local density approximation (LDA) if the bandwidth is reduced by a factor of $$sim$$ 2.5 and then the chemical potential is lowered by $$sim$$ 70 meV. Comparison with previous ARPES results on LaFePO reveals that the energy positions of the $$d$$$$_{3z^{2}-r^{2}}$$- and $$d$$$$_{yz,zx}$$-derived bands are considerably different between the two materials, which we attribute to the different pnictogen height as predicted by the LDA calculation.

The nature of the pseudogap phase of cuprate high-temperature superconductors is a major unsolved problem in condensed matter physics. We studied the commencement of the pseudogap state at temperature $$T^*$$ using three different techniques (angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, polar Kerr effect, and time-resolved reflectivity) on the same optimally doped Bi2201 crystals. We observed the coincident, abrupt onset at $$T^*$$ of a particle-hole asymmetric antinodal gap in the electronic spectrum, a Kerr rotation in the reflected light polarization, and a change in the ultrafast relaxational dynamics, consistent with a phase transition. Upon further cooling, spectroscopic signatures of superconductivity begin to grow close to the superconducting transition temperature ($$T_c$$), entangled in an energy-momentum dependent manner with the preexisting pseudogap features, ushering in a ground state with coexisting orders.
