Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A simulation study using the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau theory is performed for the vortex state in two-component superconductors, in order to investigate the nature of the double transition and exotic vortex state, such as the vortex structure at the domain wall. Half flux-quantum vortices are aligned along the domain wall, forming vortex-sheet structure. The flux flow and the pinning of the vortex sheet are also investigated.
