Exploring Quantized Flux: Insights into Superconductivity
J. Bardeen, who formulated the BCS theory of superconductivity together with Cooper and Schrieffer, reportedly described the superconducting phase as "coherent over miles of dirty lead wire". This long-lasting, long-range coherence leads to the quantization of magnetic flux in vortices in superconductors. In this talk, I will describe how to image and manipulate vortices and what they tell us about the nature of the superconducting state in exotic superconductors.
