Specific Heat and Upper Critical Field of Sc5Ir4Si10 Superconductor    [PDF]

Yue Sun, Yi Ding, Dongmei Gu, Jinchen Zhuang, Zhixiang Shi, Tsuyoshi Tamegai
Temperature and magnetic field dependent specific heat of textured Sc5Ir4Si10 superconductor was investigated in detail. Based on the fitting of zero-field electronic specific heat by different gap structures as well as the discussion on field-induced specific heat coefficient, Sc5Ir4Si10 is proved to be an anisotropic s-wave superconductor with a gap anisotropy of 0.53. The anisotropy of upper critical field suggests the weakly one-dimensional Fermi surface, and the value is consistent with the gap anisotropy result obtained from the specific heat data.
