Vortex Lines or Vortex-Line Chains at the Lower Critical Field in Anisotropic Superconductors?

Abstract

The vortex state at the lower critical field, Hc1, in clean anisotropic superconductors placed in an external field tilted with respect to the axis of anisotropy (c-axis) is considered assuming two possible arrangements: dilute vortex-lines or dilute vortex-line chains. By minimizing the Gibbs free energies in the London limit for each possibility we obtain… (More)
