Abstract
We have investigated the superconducting ground state of a high-quality UBe13 single crystal under uniaxial pressure along the [110] axis. Uniaxial pressure is expected to break the cubic symmetry and, perhaps, to remove orbital degeneracies associated with a multidimensional order parameter. However, our specific-heat measurements reveal no splitting of the superconducting transition at T(c) up to 6.8 kbar. Both T(c) (congruent-to 0.72 K) and the Sommerfeld coefficient gamma(congruent-to 1 J/k2 mole) decrease with increasing pressure, but the slopes disagree with the 1/3 rule of the hydrostatic values, as determined for polycrystalline samples.
