Title: Initial slope of the upper critical field of the heavy fermion superconductor UPt/sub 3/

Abstract

We have made low field measurements of the upper critical field as a function of temperature for all parallel and perpendicular configurations of magnetic field H, current I, and crystallographic orientation for UPt/sub 3/, the heavy fermion superconductor. The curves are quite linear for H parallel I, with slopes of -4.0 T/K for I in the basal plane and -6.3 T/K for I along the c-axis. For H perpendicular I the curves are concave upward near H = 0 and have a generally smaller slope than for the same field applied parallel to the current.
