Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The vortex core structure in a d-wave superconductor is analyzed by solving the quasi-classical Eilenberger equation self-consistently. The pair function, current and magnetic field distributions around an isolated vortex are found to break circular symmetry and show four-fold symmetry, reflecting the internal degrees of freedom in d-wave pairing.
