By considering Higgs modes within the Ginzburg-Landau framework, we study influences of a rotated magnetic field on the color-flavor-locked-type matter of dense QCD. We demonstrate, in a model-independent way, that a diquark condensate may be triggered by the magnetic response of rotated-charged Higgs modes, in addition to the known color-flavor-locked condensate. Moreover, the condensate is applied to explore formations of vortices in the presence of external magnetic fields. The superfluid…

Superfluid phases of quark matter. III. Supercurrents and vortices
We study, within Ginzburg-Landau theory, the responses of three-flavor superfluid quark-gluon plasmas to external magnetic fields and rotation, in both the color-flavor locked and isoscalar
Magnetic color-flavor locking phase in high-density QCD.
It is shown that the long-range component B of the external magnetic field that penetrates the color-flavor locked phase modifies its gap structure, producing a new phase of lower symmetry.
Magnetic vortex in color-flavor locked quark matter
Within Ginzburg-Landau theory, we study the structure of a magnetic vortex in color-flavor locked quark matter. This vortex is characterized by winding of the SU(3) phase in color-flavor space, as
Spontaneous Magnetization through Non-Abelian Vortex Formation in Rotating Dense Quark Matter
When a color superconductor of high density QCD is rotating, superfluid vortices are inevitably created along the rotation axis. In the color-flavor locked phase realized at the asymptotically large
Magnetic fields boosted by gluon vortices in color superconductivity.
It is suggested how the effects of an external magnetic field in the gluon dynamics of a color superconductor with three massless quark flavors could serve to remove the chromomagnetic instabilities existing in gapless color superconductivity.
Vortons in dense quark matter
At large baryon number density, it is likely that the ground state of QCD is a color-flavor-locked phase with a K0 condensate. The CFL+K0 phase is known to support superconducting vortex strings, and
Non-Abelian strings in high-density QCD: Zero modes and interactions
The most fundamental strings in high-density color superconductivity are the non-Abelian semisuperfluid strings which have color-gauge flux tubes but behave as superfluid vortices in the energetic
Color magnetic flux tubes in dense QCD
QCD is expected to be in the color-flavor locking phase in high baryon density, which exhibits color superconductivity. The most fundamental topological objects in the color superconductor are
