Detection and control of phase slip lines in plain superconducting NbSe2 devices — •Nicola Paradiso1, Michaela Eichinger1, Christian Bäuml1, Kenji Watanabe2, Takashi Taniguchi2, and Christoph Strunk1 — 1University of Regensburg — 2National Institute for Materials Science, Tsukuba, Japan
In ordinary superconductors the dissipationless state is destroyed when the current density reaches a critical value, known as depairing current. On the other hand, it was recently found [1,2] that in superconducting 2D materials as NbSe2, dissipation emerges as a sequential nucleation of so-called phase slip lines (PSL). Such nucleation occurs for current densities well below the depairing value. Here we study PSLs on plain few-layer NbSe2 crystals. By transport measurements we can observe the repulsive interaction between PSLs. Moreover, by using a carbon nanotube as a local heater, we can locally tune the critical current for the nucleation of one individual PSL. Our observations show that PSLs are localized and interacting objects, whose nucleation can be locally controlled.
