Abstract:
The existence of the novel superconducting state has been demonstrated in two-component high quality MgB2 single crystalline superconductors where a unique combination of both type-1 and type-2 conditions is realized in a single material: λ1/ξ1<1/√2 for the first component of the order parameter and λ2/ξ2>1/√2 for the second one. Such materials are, in fact, type-1.5 superconductors (PRL 102, 117001 (2009)), since they combine simultaneously both type-1 and type-2 superconductivity. This leads to a drastic change in the vortex-vortex interaction, which results in the appearance of stable vortex stripes, clusters and gossamer-like vortex patterns. We have directly visualized these novel patterns by using Bitter decoration and scanning SQUID microscopy. The observed patterns are in a good agreement with the molecular dynamics simulations based on the vortex-vortex interaction corresponding to the type-1.5 superconductivity.
