Title: Anisotropic upper critical fields up to 63 T in CaKFe 4As 4 single crystals

Abstract

The discovery of Fe-based superconductors (FBS) has intensified research on mechanisms of hightemperature superconductivity as well as searches for materials with higher superconducting transition temperatures, Tc. Among many different classes of FBS, the so called “122” family is one of the most well studied systems. However, superconductivity in “122” systems is often stabilized via chemical substitution, which inevitably invites chemical disorder. Recently, a new compound, CaKFe 4As 4, with a well ordered structure that is essentially composed of alternating “122” layers, was discovered with a T c of 35 K. We were able to perform the first single crystal study and measured the anisotropic upper critical fields, H c2, up to 63 T.
