Superconducting PrOs4Sb12: a thermal conductivity study

Phys Rev Lett. 2006 Dec 8;97(23):236403. doi: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.97.236403. Epub 2006 Dec 7.


The superconducting state of the heavy fermion PrOs4Sb12 is studied by heat transport measurements on a highly homogeneous single crystal exhibiting only one transition peak in the specific heat. The field and temperature dependence of the thermal conductivity confirm multiband superconductivity and point to fully open gaps on the whole Fermi surface.
