Microscopic evidence for anisotropic multigap superconductivity in the CsV3Sb5 kagome superconductor

The recently discovered kagome superconductor CsV3Sb5 (Tc ≃ 2.5 K) has been found to host charge order as well as a non-trivial band topology, encompassing multiple Dirac points and probable surface states. Such a complex and phenomenologically rich system is, therefore, an ideal playground for observing unusual electronic phases. Here, we report anisotropic superconducting properties of CsV3Sb5 by means of transverse-field muon spin rotation (μSR) experiments. The fits of temperature dependences of in-plane and out-of-plane components of the magnetic penetration depth suggest that the superconducting order parameter may have a two-gap (s+s)-wave symmetry. The multiband nature of superconductivity could be further supported by the different temperature dependences of the anisotropic magnetic penetration depth γλ(T) and upper critical field γBc2 (T). The relaxation rates obtained from zero field μSR experiments do not show noticeable change across the superconducting transition, indicating that superconductivity does not break time reversal symmetry.
