Attractive Vortex Interaction and the Intermediate-Mixed State of Superconductors
The magnetic vortices in superconductors usually repel each other. Several cases are discussed when the vortex interaction has an attractive tail, and thus a minimum, leading to vortex clusters and chains. Decoration pictures then typically look like in the intermediate state of type-I superconductors, showing lamellae or islands of Meissner state or surrounded by Meissner state, but with the normal regions filled with Abrikosov vortices that are typical for type-II superconductors in the mixed...[Show more]
