High pressure study of FeCrAs published today

Fazel Tafti's high pressure study of the non-metallic resistivity of FeCrAs was published today.

The last chapter of Fazel's Ph D thesis was published today, in J. Phys. Cond. Mat. 25 (2013) 385601.  He pressurized FeCrAs up to 17 GPa (170 kbar), and showed that the non-metallic resistivity is basically unaffected, even though the antiferromagnetism is suppressed, showing that gap formation by a spin-density-wave state is not at the heart of the non-metallic resistivity of this system.
