We report resistivity, magnetization, critical current density, and the upper critical field of the single crystalline FeTe0.61Se 0.39 with Tc ∼ 14 K synthesized via slow-furnace cooling followed by low-temperature annealing. Magneto-optical observation confirms the uniformity of current flow in the crystal and the critical current density is estimated to exceed 1 × 105 A/cm2 below 5 K under zero field. Weak fish-tail effect is identified at lower temperatures. Upper critical field along ab-plane at T = 0 K estimated from WHH theory exceeds 1000 kOe, which is much higher than that in Ba(Fe0.9Co 0.1)2As2.
