Abstract

We present an approach that allows the reconstruction of the zero-field magnetic penetration depth λ0 based on the results of muon-spin-rotation (μSR) experiments conducted in a superconductor in the vortex state. It was successfully applied to describe the μSR experiments in optimally doped (BiPb)2(SrLa)2CuO6+δ (OP Bi2201). We found that in unconventional d-wave superconductors (such as OP Bi2201) only at relatively low magnetic fields [B/Bc2≲10−3; Bc2 is the upper critical field] the effective penetration depth λeff, obtained in μSR experiment, is a good measure of λ0. The high-field data need to be evaluated accounting for both the nonlinear and the nonlocal corrections.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
