In the quest for high critical temperature superconductors (HTCS), a new family of iron-based compounds was discovered in 2008, some of them containing arsenic while others, more recently found, contain selenium or tellurium. Our measurements, performed with a system of this latter type, show a relatively small anisotropy of the critical field Hc2 (above which superconductivity disappears), in contrast to the anisotropy expected from the crystalline structure.
