Abstract [en]

Using ac susceptibility, we determine the critical current density J(c) and the flux creep activation energy U of an a-axis-oriented HgBa2CaCu2O6+delta thin film. The critical current density at helium temperatures is found to be 4.6 x 10(4) A/cm(2), i.e., about two orders of magnitude smaller than for corresponding films with c-axis orientation. The temperature and ac field dependent activation energy is consistent with dislocation-mediated flux creep and well described by U(T,H-ac)=U-o(1-t(4))H-ac(-1/2) with t=T/T-c, T-c=120K, and U-o = 0.77 eV Oe(1/2) for temperatures T>45 K and in the field range studied. The activation energy is of the same order as that found in c-axis-oriented films. Below T = 45 K the activation energy is observed to decrease as thermally assisted quantum creep becomes increasingly important.
