Abstract

We discovered the superconductivity in Lu2SnC with the T c of 5.2 K. Lu2SnC crystallizes in a hexagonal structure (Cr2AlC-type) with the space group of P63/mmc. We measured the physical properties of Lu2SnC in the superconducting state as functions of temperature and magnetic field. The M-H curve shows the typical type-II superconducting behavior. Superconducting parameters Hc1(0), Hc2(0), λ(0), ξ(0) and κGL are determined to be about 110 Oe, 4.5 kOe, 250 nm, 27 nm, and 9.2, respectively.
