Mechanics of individual isolated vortices in a cuprate superconductor

The ability to wiggle and stretch individual superconducting vortices with nanoscale precision enables unprecedented insight into their dynamics and the properties of the superconductor that supports

Probing the low-frequency vortex dynamics in a nanostructured superconducting strip

We investigate by scanning susceptibility microscopy the response of a thin Pb strip, with a square array of submicron antidots, to a low-frequency ac magnetic field applied perpendicularly to the

Vortex creep and critical current densities in superconducting (Ba,K)Fe_2As_2 single crystals

The surprisingly rapid relaxation of the sustainable current density in the critical state of single crystalline (Ba,K)Fe_2As_2 is investigated for magnetic fields oriented parallel to the c-axis and

Unconventional vortex dynamics in superconducting states with broken time-reversal symmetry

We report vortex dynamics in the unconventional superconductors Sr 2 RuO 4 , thoriated UBe 1 3 and compare it with previous data on UPt 3 [A. Amann, A. C. Mota, M. B. Maple, and H.v. Lohneysen, Phys.

Persistence of pinning and creep beyond critical drive within the strong pinning paradigm

Pinning and thermal creep determine the response of numerous systems containing superstructures, e.g., vortices in type II superconductors, domain walls in ferroics, or dislocations in metals. The

Collective and plastic vortex motion in superconductors at high flux densities

The ‘mixed state’ of type II superconductors occurs when magnetic flux penetrates the material (in the form of vortices) without destroying the superconducting ground state. Zero resistivity is

Thermal hysteresis of the Campbell response as a probe for bulk pinning landscape spectroscopy

In type-II superconductors, the macroscopic response of vortex matter to an external perturbation depends on the local interaction of flux lines with the pinning landscape (pinscape). The (Campbell)

Ordered, disordered, and coexistent stable vortex lattices in NbSe2 single crystals.

The peak effect (PE) in the critical current density of type II superconductors has been related to an order-disorder transition in the vortex lattice (VL), but its underlying physics remains a
