Abstract

We have investigated the normal-state and superconducting properties of Co-doped BaFe2As2 (Ba122) and MgB2 thin films irradiated at room temperature using a 30 keV focused He+ ion beam with doses between 1012and 1017 cm2. We show that superconductivity is suppressed and the normal-state resistivity is increased upon irradiation. The critical dose for the complete suppression of superconductivity is ∼5 -1014 cm-2 for Ba122 and ∼8 -1015 cm-2 for MgB2. The dependence of the normal-state and superconducting properties on irradiation dose is discussed, taking into account the spatial distribution of ion-induced damage. Hillock formation due to the substrate swelling, arising from the He+ ions stopped in the substrate, is also observed. The findings provide guidelines for exploiting focused He+ ion beam irradiation in fabricating iron pnictide and MgB2 planar Josephson junctions.
