Dynamics of liquid crystal vortex in a layered superconductor

Press release (in Japanese)

We report the dynamics of liquid crystal vortices in layered dilute Fe-doped NbS2 superconductors. We observed enhanced superconductivity with Fe atom doping. The thermally activated vortex flow causes a broad resistive transition. The temperature dependence of the melting field Hm on the applied magnetic field exhibits an upturn behavior as the temperature decreases. The result indicates that……
