We present thermal conductivity and specific heat measurements on MgB2 and Mg-AlB2 samples. Thermal properties have been analyzed by using a two-gap model in order to estimate the gap amplitudes, Delta(0)(pi) and Delta(0)(sigma) and the intra-band scattering rates, Gamma(sigmasigma) and Gamma(pipi). Delta(0)(sigma) rapidly decreases as a function of Al doping and disorder, while Delta(0)(pi) is rather constant. Gamma(sigmasigma) and Gamma(pipi) are increased by disorder, being Gamma(pipi) more affected than Gamma(sigmasigma).

Abstract

We present thermal conductivity and specific heat measurements on MgB2 and Mg-AlB2 samples. Thermal properties have been analyzed by using a two-gap model in order to estimate the gap amplitudes, Delta(0)(pi) and Delta(0)(sigma) and the intra-band scattering rates, Gamma(sigmasigma) and Gamma(pipi). Delta(0)(sigma) rapidly decreases as a function of Al doping and disorder, while Delta(0)(pi) is rather constant. Gamma(sigmasigma) and Gamma(pipi) are increased by disorder, being Gamma(pipi) more affected than Gamma(sigmasigma).
