Transition From Slow-moving Abrikosov Vortices to Fast-moving Josephson Vortices in an Iron Superconductor
Josephson vortices were unexpectedly observed in the high-temperature iron superconductor SmFeAs(O,F), despite the material’s low electronic anisotropy. This development is important for the future deployment in high-Tc cable technology.
