Abstract

New thermal conductivity experiments on the heavy-fermion superconductor CeCoIn5 down to 10mK rule out the suggested existence of unpaired electrons. Moreover, they reveal strong multigap effects with a remarkably low "critical" field Hc2S for the small gap band, showing that the complexity of heavy-fermion band structure has a direct impact on their response under magnetic field.
