Vortices in high-temperature superconductors
With the high-temperature superconductors a qualitatively new regime in the phenomenology of type-II superconductivity can be accessed. The key elements governing the statistical mechanics and the
Granular electronic systems
Granular metals are arrays of metallic particles of a size ranging usually from a few to hundreds of nanometers embedded into an insulating matrix. Metallic granules are often viewed as artificial
Numerical Simulation of Vortex Dynamics in Type-II Superconductors
This article describes the results of several numerical simulations of vortex dynamics in type-II superconductors. The underlying mathematical model is the time-dependent Ginzburg?Landau model. The
Fluctuation spectroscopy of disordered two-dimensional superconductors
We revise the long-studied problem of fluctuation conductivity (FC) in disordered two-dimensional superconductors placed in a perpendicular magnetic field by finally deriving the complete solution in
Disorder-induced inhomogeneities of the superconducting state close to the superconductor-insulator transition.
Scanning tunneling spectroscopy at very low temperatures on homogeneously disordered superconducting titanium nitride thin films suggests that local superconductivity survives across the disorder-driven superconductor-insulator transition.
Superinsulator and quantum synchronization
It is shown that at a certain finite temperature, a Cooper-pair insulator undergoes a transition to a superinsulating state with infinite resistance, and it is presented experimental evidence of this transition in titanium nitride films and shown that the superinsulation state is dual to the superconducting state.
Evaporation and fluid dynamics of a sessile drop of capillary size.
Theoretical description and numerical simulation of an evaporating sessile drop are developed and several dynamical stages of the convection characterized by different number of vortices in the drop are demonstrated.
Dislocations and the critical endpoint of the melting line of vortex line lattices
line merge. 14 In this paper we present an explanation for the existence of a critical endpoint of the first-order melting line in the presence of point disorder. Our argumentation is based on a
