RbFe2As2 is a member of the extensively investigated family of 122 iron based superconductors AFe2As2. It acts as the link between A=K and Cs, and as extremal hole-doping for A=Sr and Ba. The nature of the superconducting state in these compounds is still open, but likely to feature different nodal gap structures.
We report resistivity measurements of very pure (RRR > 1000) crystals of RbFe2As2. Superconductivity at ambient pressure and zero field is observed below 2.8K. We follow this transition and the upper critical field as a function of hydrostatic pressure up to 30 kbar.
Furthermore we observe a non-Fermi liquid form for the temperature dependence of the resistivity in the normal state, which we track as a function of pressure and applied magnetic field.
