Claughton, N. R. and Lambert, Colin (1993) Quasi-particle states of a linear chain of vortices in a mixed-state superconductor. Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, 5 (39). L475-L480. ISSN 0953-8984Full text not available from this repository.
We examine the low-lying quasi-particle states of a chain of vortices contained within a thin slab of superconductor and demonstrate that bound states of individual vortices hybridize to form bands of extended states. As a consequence of the phase gradient around a vortex, one such band is centred on zero energy and will therefore contribute to quasi-particle transport at energies far below the superconducting transition temperature.
