Vortex Pinning State on RE123 Films with c-axis Correlated Disorders



We study the vortex pinning state for REBa2Cu3Ox (RE123,RE: rare-earth) films with various kinds of c-axis correlated pinning. In case of the LTG-Sm123 film, the peak around B//c (θ = 0˚) in the angular dependence of Jc shrinks and almost disappears with increasing a magnetic field but it grows again with further increasing of a magnetic field at various temperatures as shown in the insets of the figure. As a result, the complex vortex pinning state diagram can be described schematically as shown in the figure. In addition, we also found that the vortex pinning state diagram strongly depends on a sort of the c-axis correlated disorders such as columnar shaped precipitates, edge dislocations or columnar defects by fission track and so on.

様々なc軸相関ピンニングを有するREBa2Cu3Ox (RE123, RE: rare-earth)膜における,磁束ピンニング状態を調べた.LTG-Sm123膜の場合,挿入図に示すように,c軸相関ピンに由来するJcの角度依存性におけるB//c (θ = 0˚)近傍のピークは,磁場の増加と共に一旦消滅した後,不可逆磁場近傍で再度増加することが分かった.この結果から,図のような磁束ピンニング状態図が描かれる.さらに,この磁束ピンニング状態図は,c軸相関ピンの種類によって大きく変化すること見出した.
