Elastic moduli of vortex lattices within nonlocal London model.


Vortex lattice (VL) elastic response is analyzed within the nonlocal London model which holds for high-kappa clean superconductors. The squash modulus vanishes at the field H( square) where VL undergoes a square-to-rhombus transition. For H>H( square), where the square VL is stable, the rotation modulus turns zero at H = H(r), indicating VL instability to… (More)
