dc.description.abstractThe isotope effect in the recently disvovered class o superconductors LuNi2B2C and La3Ni2B2N3 is investigated in the context of electron-squezed phonon interaction renormalizing the Ni-d electron-electron correlations. Squeezed phonon mode originates from the anharmonic character of the tetragonal Ni-B structure and is polarized in the vortical direction to the Ni layers. The isotope effect arises as a result of the zero point motion of the Ni-Ni d-electron hopping amplitude dominantly due to this vertical phonon mode. Within this model the isotope exponent is calculated to be αB ≤ 0.20 as compared to the recently found experimental value αexp B=0.27∓0.10. Finally, the phonon frequency softening predicted by our model eletron-phonon interaction is discussed within the context of recent experiments on the relevant boron A1g softening.en_US
