Abstract

Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy of Ca(Al0.5Si 0.5)2 (CaAlSi), which is a superconductor (transition temperature is 7.7 K) with the AlB2 structure, revealed that superconducting gaps on two Fermi surfaces (FSs) with three-dimensional character around Γ(A) and M(L) in the Brillouin zone provide essentially the same superconducting gap value (∼ 1.2 meV±0.2 meV). This is in contrast to the case of MgB2, in which different FSs exhibit different gap values. The reduced gap value 2Δ(0)/kBT c of ∼4.2±0.2 classifies CaAlSi as a moderately strong-coupling superconductor.
