Abstract:The transition from superconductor to normal phases can be dominated either by the decay of the order parameter or by strong, random fluctuation of phase. In this work, we would like to utilize a system with pinned magnetic vortices above Tc in order to propose an experiment that may be used to distinguish these two types of transition.
