dc.description.abstractWe prepared samples of MgB2 and ran sets of experiments aimed for investigation of superconducting properties under pressure. We found the value of pressure derivative of the transition temperature -1.2 ± 0.05 K/GPa. Then, using McMillan formula, we found that the main contribution to the change of the transition temperature under the pressure is due to the change in phonon frequencies. Griineisen parameter was calculated to be 7g = 2.4. Our results suggest that MgB2 is a conventional superconductor.en_US
