Paper Abstract

The organic charge transfer salts and the heavy fermion systems are recently discovered superconductors that may involve entirely new mechanisms of superconductivity. Many competing interactions vie with superconductivity for the lowest energy state: magnetic fluctuations, charge and spin density waves. The characteristic energies of these excitations are in the far infrared. This paper reviews a selection of recent work in far infrared spectroscopy on some unconventional superconductors.
