In- and out-of-plane London penetration depths were measured in CaAlSi single crystals (Tc =6.2 and 7.3 K) using a tunnel-diode resonator. A full three-dimensional (3D) BCS analysis of the superfluid density is consistent with a prolate spheroidal gap, with a weak-coupling BCS value in the ab plane and stronger coupling along the c axis. The gap anisotropy was found to significantly decrease for higher Tc samples.
