Abstract

The plate-like single crystals of tetragonal (P4/nmm) FeSe1−x superconductors were grown using the KCl–AlCl3 flux technique which produced single crystalline tetragonal samples of about 4 × 4 × 0.1 mm3 dimensions. The energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy established a ratio of Fe : Se = 1 : 0.96 ± 0.02. The resistivity and magnetization measurements revealed a sharp superconducting transition at Tc = 9.4 K. Multiple Andreev reflections spectroscopy pointed to the existence of two-gap superconductivity with the gap values ΔL = 2.4 ± 0.2 meV and ΔS = 0.75 ± 0.1 meV at 4.2 K.
