Using ultrafast cooling (with the cooling rate up to 10⁶ K/s) helps to minimize the T-alloying concentration (T = Mo, Pt, Pd, Nb, Zr) necessary to retain the γ-U phase down to low temperatures. All investigated splat-cooled U-T alloys become superconducting with T_{c} in the range of 0.61-2.11 K. The bulk character of superconductivity can be concluded for some of the splats when comparing the specific-heat anomaly at T_{c} with the BCS theory prediction.
