We study the structure of Abrikosov vortices in two-band superconductors for different external magnetic fields and different parameters of the bands, including the interband scattering rate. The vortex-core size determined by the coherence lengths is found to have qualitatively different behavior from that determined by the quasiparticle density of states spatial variation. These different vortex-core length scales coincide near the upper critical field, while the discrepancy between them becomes quite significant at lower fields. Within the diffusive approximation we demonstrate several generic regimes in the field dependence of the vortex-core sizes determined by the disparity of diffusion constants in the two bands, interband pairing, and interband scattering rate.

This frustrated interaction can ...
Garaud, Julien; Corticelli, Alberto; Silaev, Mikhail; Babaev, Egor (American Physical Society, 2018)In multiband systems, such as iron-based superconductors, the superconducting states with locking and antilocking of the interband phase differences are usually considered as mutually exclusive. For example, a dirty two-band ...

Non-London electrodynamics in a multiband London model : anisotropy-induced nonlocalities and multiple magnetic field penetration lengths Silaev, Mikhail; Winyard, Thomas; Babaev, Egor (American Physical Society, 2018)The London model describes strongly type-2 superconductors as massive vector field theories, where the magnetic field decays exponentially at the length scale of the London penetration length. This also holds for isotropic ...
