Abstract

Based on the quasiclassical Eilenberger theory, we investigate the vortex structure in type II superconductors with strong Pauli-paramagnetic contributions due to the Zeeman effect. We quantitatively study how the paramagnetic effect suppresses the superconductivity, and evaluate the flux line lattice (FLL) form factor from the calculated internal field distribution both in the s-wave and d-wave pairings. When the paramagnetic effects are strong, the intensity of the FLL form factor increases toward H c2 as a function of an applied field, instead of exponential decay. This anomalous field dependence is due to the induced paramagnetic moments around the vortex core. We discuss the anomalous field-dependence of the FLL form factor observed by the small angle neutron scattering in CeCoIn 5.
