Type-I superconductivity in Al$_6$Re

11 Apr 2019 Peets Darren C. Cheng Erjian Ying Tianping Kriener Markus Shen Xiaoping Li Shiyan Feng Donglai

While the pure elements tend to exhibit Type-I rather than Type-II superconductivity, nearly all compound superconductors are Type-II, with only a few known exceptions. We report single crystal growth and physical characterization of the rhenium aluminide Al$_6$Re, which we conclude is a Type-I superconductor based on magnetization, ac-susceptibility, and specific-heat measurements...
