Vortex dynamics in clean superconductors

Abstract:  Vortex dynamics in clean superconductors is determined by localized excitations in the vortex core. Kinetics of these excitations for s- and d-wave superconductors is studied on the basis of microscopic theory of superconductivity. The forces acting on a moving vortex , the vortex mass, and the longitudinal and Hall conductivities are calculated. Microwave resonances on vortex-core states are discussed.
