Abstract

We have investigated the electronic structures of antiferromagnetic superconductor ErNi2B2C by using laser-photoemission spectroscopy. The observed spectra below the superconducting transition temperature (Tc = 9.0 K) show a very broad coherent peak and finite density of states at the Fermi level due to strong magnetic pair breaking effects. In addition, we find a dip structure in the temperature dependence of the superconducting order parameter just below the antiferromagnetic ordering temperature (TN = 6.0 K). This behavior can be well interpreted as a result of competition between the rapid evolution of the antiferromagnetic molecular field and the increase of the superconducting condensation energy with decreasing temperature.
