Title: Vortex pinning and irreversibility fields in FeS 1– xSe x ( x = 0, 0.06)

Abstract

In this paper, we report strong vortex pinning and large irreversibility fields in single crystals of tetragonal FeS 1–xSe x (x = 0, 0.06). Vortex dynamics is characterized by crossover in field dependence of the depinning energy U 0, indicative of single flux surface pinning to the region of collective flux pinning on point-like defects. Finally, the close proximity of the irreversibility lines to the upper critical field (H c2) is consistent with strong pinning in FeS and FeS 0.94Se 0.06, pointing that new materials with building-blocks of FeS 4 tetrahedra are likely to host high critical currents.
