Title: Thermodynamic evidence for the Bose glass transition in twinned YBa 2 Cu 3 O 7 - δ crystals

We used a micromechanical torsional o scillator to measure the magnetic response of a twinned YBaBa2Cu3O7-δ single crystal disk near the Bose glass transition. We observe an anomaly in the temperature dependence of the magnetization consistent with the appearance of a magnetic shielding perpendicular to the correlated pinning of the twin boundaries. This effect is related to the thermodynamic transition from the vortex liquid phase to a Bose glass state.
