Abstract

We present measurements of the superconducting gap of URu 2Si 2 made with scanning tunneling microscopy using a superconducting tip of Al. We find tunneling conductance curves with a finite value at the Fermi level. The density of states is V shaped at low energies, and the quasiparticle peaks are located at values close to the expected superconducting gap from weak-coupling BCS theory. Our results point to rather opened gap structures and gap nodes on the Fermi surface.
