Vortex Dynamics in High-Tc superconductors
Histogram of paths of vortices (red shows the actual paths, blue shows areas that have never been crossed by a vortex). The height of the surface represents the pinning pontential.
The dynamics of vortices in high temperature superconductors exhibits the complex and rich physics we expect from many body systems with competing interactions. Molecular Dynamics, Langevin Dynamics and Monte Carlo Computer simulations are carried out to understand this system in more detail.
