  Title Interplay between pinning energy and vortex interaction in YBa2Cu3O7-delta with oriented twin boundaries in tilted magnetic fields: Bitter decoration and tilt-modulus measurements Type Journal Article
  Year 2000 Publication Physical Review B Abbreviated Journal Phys. Rev. B

  Abstract We have performed Bitter decoration and ac susceptibility measurements in single-crystal YBa2Cu3O7-delta with oriented twin boundaries. The twin boundaries (TB's) pin vortices over approximately 65% of the sample. The pinned areas are unevenly distributed and some relatively large TB-free regions are present. The Bitter decorations were performed in a 52 Oe de magnetic field rotated off the c axis so that the plane defined by the field direction and the c axis is perpendicular to the TB's. Several decorations were performed in the same sample. Additional dynamical information was obtained from ac susceptibility measurements. Results show that for small tilts the vortices remain locked to the c-axis direction, for angles greater than 12 degrees they form a staircase pattern, and in this case pinning by the twin boundaries remains effective up to 75 degrees. We observe vortex chains in twin-free-zones of the sample for tilted fields at 65 degrees and 40 degrees. Due to our particular experimental arrangement, in the twinned regions the interplay of the potentials giving rise to the chains and the pinning potential produces a structure with a disordered square symmetry. The data allow us to estimate the dominant energy of the vortex system for some inclinations of the applied magnetic field.
