Scanning tunneling spectroscopy along with magnetization measurements were employed in the study of -doped . The magnetization data suggest that a superconducting phase is formed below K. Tunneling experiments reveal islands, 20–150 nm in size, having a superconductor-like density of states. These islands cover about 10% of the surface, the rest of which is insulating, and exhibit spectroscopic gaps having values up to . Therefore this material seems to be a non-cuprate superconductor with a high critical temperature.
