Transparency of the ab Planes of Bi 2 Sr 2 CaCu 2 O 8+δ to magnetic fields

Published

Journal Article

A sample composed of many Bi 2 Sr 2 CaCu 2 O 8+δ single crystals was cooled to 2 K in a magnetic field of 100 G at 45° from the c axis. Muon-spin-rotation measurements were made for which the polarization was initially approximately in the ab plane. The time dependent polarization components along this initial direction and along the c axis were obtained. Cosine transforms of these and subsequent measurements were made. Upon removing the applied field, still at 2 K, only the c axis component of the field remained in the sample, thus providing microscopic evidence for extreme 2D behavior for the vortices even at this temperature. © 1998 American Physical Society.
