Kohn anomaly occurs in metals as a weak but discernible kink in the phonon spectrum around 2kF arising out of screened Coulombic interaction. Over the years this has been observed in a number of normal metallic systems. As a major surprise however, the recent neutron spin-echo experiments on elemental (conventional) superconductors Pb and Nb reveal a very important and striking relation that Kohn (anomaly) energy equals twice the energy of the superconducting gap. In this paper we explore the...[Show more]
