Abstract

The upper critical field Bc2(T) of sintered and sputtered copper molybdenum sulfide CuxMo6S8 was measured. It was found to be higher than the highest prediction for a type II superconductor in the dirty limit with no paramagnetic limiting and with weak isotropic electron phonon coupling. The enhancement of Bc2(T) is probably due either to anisotrophy or to purity or to both. Other ternary molybdenum sulfides appear to show similar anomalies.
