Abstract

A study was performed to demonstrate that the vortex lattice morphology is deeply connected to the underlying microscopic electronic structure. In particular, it was shown that the reentrant transition from the square to the rhombic lattice in LuNi2B2C can be well understood as arising from the two competing supporting conducting gap and Fermi surface anisotropies both of which are documented to exist experimentally.
