  • We derive a general quasiclassical approach for long-range magnetic-field quantization effects in superconductors. The method is applied to superclean d-wave superconductors in the mixed state for delocalized states with energies {epsilon}>>{Delta}{sub 0}H/H{sub c2}. We find that the energy spectrum consists of narrow energy bands whose centers are located at the Landau levels calculated in the absence of the vortex potential. We show that transitions between the states belonging to the… CONTINUE READING
