Emergence of Non-Axisymmetric Vortex in Strong-Coupling Chiral p-Wave Superconductor

Article

Abstract

We studied the strong-coupling effect upon an isolated vortex in a two-dimensional chiral p-wave superconductor. We solved the Eilenberger equation for the quasiclassical Green’s functions and the Éliashberg equation with single-mode Einstein boson self-consistently. We calculated the free energy of each obtained vortex and found that a non-axisymmetric vortex metastably exists in some situation.
