Abstract

A new class of superconducting compounds has very recently been investigated.1,2 These compounds are atomically thin metallic layers separated by one or more layers of organic molecules.1 The variety of T c ’s obtainable and the strongly anisotropic critical field behavior invite careful study. The normal-to-superconducting transitions of these materials is usually quite broad (~0.5-1°K)2 In some cases this can be directly attributable to inhomogeneities or other phase regions in the sample.3 Microwaves probe a much smaller region in the material than other types of measurements and yield the critical field and temperature information as well as the penetration of the fields into the material.
