Unformatted text preview: Physics 880.06: Problem Set 7 Due Tuesday, May 31, 2011 at 11:59 P. M. 1. (20 pts.) As stated in class, the anisotropic GinzburgLandau free en ergy density is given by the following expression: f = f n +   2 + 2   4 + 1 2 m ab vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle parenleftBigg i h e A c parenrightBigg vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle 2 + + 1 2 m c vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle parenleftbigg i h z e A z c parenrightbigg vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle 2 +  B  2 8 . (1) Here and are scalar coefficients, is the complex scalar order parameter, f is the free energy per unit volume, f n is the normal state free energy density, A is the vector potential, B is the magnetic induction, and m ab and m c are the effective masses. We also assume that the coefficient has the temperature dependence = [ T/T c (0) 1] , (2) where is a positive constant and T c (0) is the superconducting tran sition temperature at zero field. The two GinzburgLandau equations obtained from this free energy are +   2 + 1 2 m ab parenleftBigg i h e A c parenrightBigg 2 + + 1 2 m c parenleftbigg i h z e A z c parenrightbigg 2 = 0 (3) and J = e 2 m ab bracketleftBigg parenleftBigg i h e A c parenrightBigg + c.c. bracketrightBigg + + e 2 m c bracketleftbigg parenleftbigg i h z e A z c parenrightbigg + c.c. bracketrightbigg z. (4) (a). (10 pts.) By linearizing Eq. 3 with respect to , and finding the energy of the lowest Landau level, find the transition temperature 1 T c ( B ) for (i) B parallel to the z axis; (ii) B parallel to the x axis....
