We use driven Monte Carlo dynamics to study the resistive behavior of superconducting Josephson junction arrays on a honeycomb lattice in a magnetic field corresponding to $f$ flux quantum per plaquette. While for $f=1/3$ the onset of zero resistance is found at nonzero temperature, for $f=1/2$ the results are consistent with a transition scenario where the critical temperature vanishes and the linear resistivity shows thermally activated behavior. We determine the thermal critical exponent of…

Driving a Superconductor to Insulator Transition with Random Gauge Fields

It is shown that disorder in the form of random gauge fields that act directly on particle phases can also drive localization, and evidence of a superfluid bose glass to insulator transition at a critical level of this gauge field disorder in a nano-patterned array of amorphous Bi islands is presented.

Disorder influences the quantum critical transport at a superconductor-to-insulator transition

We isolated flux disorder effects on the transport at the critical point of the quantum magnetic field tuned Superconductor to Insulator transition (BSIT). The experiments employed films patterned

We present a theoretical study of resonant frequencies and spatial correlations of Josephson phases in frustrated arrays of Josephson junctions. Two types of one-dimensional arrays, namely, the

Magnetic Flux Disorder Impact on the Superconductor to Insulator Transition and its Critical Resistance

Discerning the role disorder plays in conductor to insulator quantum phase transitions in bulk and thin film materials poses an ongoing challenge. The primary measure of disorder, resistance, depends
