Magnetic dipole interaction in an anisotropic type-II superconductor

  • S. N. Burmistrov
  • L. B. Dubovskii


The effect of the electromagnetic interplay between the supercurrent and localized magnetic moments is incorporated into the calculation of the magnetic dipole interaction in an anisotropic superconductor. The anisotropy of the magnetic field screening leads to an anisotropic cutoff of the dipole interaction with the radius which depends on the arrangement of magnetic moments with respect to the crystal anisotropy axis and varies between the principal-axis magnetic field penetration depthsδab andδc. The features of the modified lowest energy configuration of two magnetic moments are discussed as well.
