Title: In-plane magnetic penetration depth of superconducting CaKFe 4 As 4

Abstract

Here, the temperature dependence of the in-plane magnetic penetration depth (λ ab) in an extensively characterized sample of superconducting CaKFe 4As 4(T c≃35K) was investigated using muon-spin rotation (μSR). A comparison of λ –2 ab(T) measured by μSR with the one inferred from angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) data confirms the presence of multiple gaps at the Fermi level. An agreement between μSR and ARPES requires the presence of additional bands, which are not resolved by ARPES experiments. These bands are characterized by small superconducting gaps with an average zero-temperature value of Δ 0=2.4(2)meV. Our data suggest that in CaKFe 4As 4 the s ± order parameter symmetry acquires a more sophisticated form by allowing a sign change not only between electron and hole pockets, but also within pockets of similar type.
