There is strong evidence that magnetic interactions play a crucial role in the mechanism driving high-temperature superconductivity in cuprate superconductors. To investigate this further we have done neutron scattering experiments on the simplest high-temperature superconductor La(2-x)Sr(x)CuO(4) (LSCO) in an applied magnetic field. Below the superconducting transition temperature (Tc), the field penetrates the material via an array of normal state inclusions or vortices while phase coherent… 

Antiferromagnetic order induced by an applied magnetic field in a high-temperature superconductor

It is reported that for one high-Tc superconductor, the applied field that imposes the vortex lattice also induces ‘striped’ antiferromagnetic order, observed in the measurements.
