High-pressure synthesis techniques have allowed for the growth of Sn1−xInxTe samples beyond the ambient In-saturation limit of x = 0.5 (Tc ∼ 4.5 K). In this study, we present measurements of the temperature dependence of the London penetration depth ∆λ(T) in this superconducting doped topological insulator for x = 0.7, where Tc,onset ≈ 5 K. The results indicate fully gapped BCS-like behavior, ruling out odd-parity A2u pairing; however, odd-parity A1u pairing is still possible. Critical field values measured below 1 K and other superconducting parameters are also presented.
