Possible impurity pinning has been investigated in quasi-one-dimensional superconductors, and it is found that a 2π-soliton of Josephson phase can spontaneously be created around an impurity as far as the amplitude of the order parameter of the superconductivity is small enough. The result implies the existence of a novel resistive state just below the critical temperature, which is expected to be highly non-Ohmic.
