Abstract Order-disorder transitions between glassy phases are common in nature and yet a comprehensive survey on the entailed structural changes is challenging since the constituents are in the micro-scale. Vortex matter in type-II superconductors is a model system where some of these experimental challenges can be tackled. Samples with point disorder present a glassy transition on increasing the density of vortices. A glassy yet quasi-crystalline phase, the Bragg glass, nucleates at low densities. The vortex glass stable at high densities is expected to be disordered, however its detailed structural properties remained experimentally elusive. Here we show that the vortex glass has large crystallites with in-plane positional displacements growing algebraically and short-range orientational order. Furthermore, the vortex glass has a finite and almost constant correlation length along the direction of vortices, in sharp contrast with strong entanglement. These results are important for the understanding of disorder-driven phase transitions in glassy condensed matter.

Title Direct visualization of local interaction forces in Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ vortex matter Type Journal Article
Year (up) 2019 Publication Materials Today: Proceedings Abbreviated Journal XXIII Latin American Symposium on Solid State Physics (SLAFES XXIII), San Carlos de Bariloche, Argen
Volume 14 Issue Pages 34-37
Keywords Vortex matter; Pinning forces; Layered superconductors
Abstract We study the local vortex-vortex interaction force fi of the structure frozen during a field-cooling process in an electron-irradiated Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ sample. We compute this magnitude from snapshots of the vortex structure obtained via magnetic decoration experiments at various fields H in the same sample. Since the observed structures correspond to the equilibrium ones frozen at T∼Tirr(H)[1], at this temperature the local modulus of fi roughly equals the local pinning force at the decorated surface of the sample. We estimate the most probable local pinning force from the mode value of the fi(r)distribution, fpm. We found that fpm grows algebraically with H and in electron-irradiated samples is 50-20% smaller than for samples with columnar defects.
