Abstract

In-plane resistivity measurements as a function of temperature, magnetic field, and its orientation with respect to the crystallographic ab plane were used to study the upper critical field, H-c2, of two overdoped compositions of the iron-based superconductor Ba(Fe1-xNix)(2)As-2, x = 0.054 and x = 0.072. Measurements were performed using precise alignment (with accuracy less than 0.1 degrees.) of magnetic field with respect to the Fe-As plane. The dependence of the H-c2 on angle theta between the field and the ab plane was measured in isothermal conditions in a broad temperature range. We found that the shape of H-c2(theta) clearly deviates from the Ginzburg-Landau functional form. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.87.094505
