The structure of the vortex lattice in anisotropic superconductors

Abstract

The structure of the vortex lattice in anisotropic superconductors at an arbitrary temperature in magnetic fields close to critical was studied. Generally, a rhombohedral structure with a vertex angle depending on temperature, magnetic field, and material constants is formed. An important factor is the small (2%) difference of the free energies of the triangular and square lattices in the Ginzburg-Landau approximation. This factor also persists in anisotropic superconductors.
