A bstractIn the recent paper arXiv:1606.02921, the two invariant actions for 6D N=10$$ \mathcal{N}=\left(1,0\right) $$ conformal supergravity were constructed in superspace, corresponding to the supersymmetrization of C3 and C□C. In this paper, we provide the translation from superspace to the component formulation of superconformal tensor calculus, and we give the full component actions of these two invariants. As a second application, we build the component form for the supersymmetric F□F… 

Non-conformal supercurrents in six dimensions
