Abstract

In order to investigate the Pb concentration dependence of the irreversibility field Hirr in the Pb-substituted Bi2Sr2CuO6+δ (Bi2.12-xPbxSr1.88CuO6+ δ), we have measured the temperature dependence of the in-plane electrical resistivity in magnetic fields up to 15 T parallel to the c-axis. It is found that Hirr increases for x ≤ 0.27 with increasing x, while it remarkably decreases for x > 0.32. Striking feature is the enhancement of Hirr around x ∼ 0.27-0.32. A possible origin of the enhancement is the two-phase microstructures consisting of modulated and modulation-free domains. In such a case, the phase boundary of the microstructures works effectively as pinning centers for vortices, in contrast to the homogeneous modulated x = 0.18 and the homogeneous modulation-free x = 0.37. Our results strongly suggest the close relation between two-phase microstructures and the enhancement of Hirr.
