Abstract

Critical temperature (Tc) of ultrathin filaments (UF) was determined from UF resistance dependence on temperature, using some theoretical description of the fluctuation smeared superconducting transition. Tc vs diameter (d) were measured for mercury and tin UF with diameters from 20 to 150 Å. Critical temperature of tin filaments increases with diameter decreasing (up to 5.2 K) and Tc(d) for mercury UF has a maximum (Tmaxc = 4.6 K for d ≅ 40 A ̊).
