Abstract

We present detailed heat capacity measurements for Ba(Fe1−xCox)2As2 and Ba(Fe1−xNix)2As2 single crystals in the vicinity of the superconducting transitions. The specific-heat jump at the superconducting transition temperature (Tc), ΔCp/Tc, changes by a factor of ∼10 across these series. The ΔCp/Tc vs Tc data of this work [together with the literature data for Ba(Fe0.939Co0.061)2As2, (Ba0.55K0.45)Fe2As2, and (Ba0.6K0.4)Fe2As2] scale well to a single log-log plot over two orders of magnitude in ΔCp/Tc and over about an order of magnitude in Tc, giving ΔCp/Tc∝T2c.
