Abstract

In chiral p-wave superconductors a flux lattice of doubly quantized vortices is shown to be energetically stable for fields Hc1 <HFL <H <Hc2, while at low fields a lattice of singly quantized vortices is stable. Here we report self-consistent calculations by Eilenberger theory for spatial structures of the pair potential and current density for vortex states of single- and double-winding vortices in chiral p-wave superconductors with a cylindrical Fermi surface.
