Abstract [en]

We have studied the driven vortex lattice in untwinned, clean YBa2 Cu-3 O7-delta single crystals, showing the first order (melting) transition T-m. At high enough driving currents (j similar to 10(3) A/cm(2), j greater than or similar to j(c)) and temperatures T < T-m a clear distinction is found between two different behaviours of the moving vortex lattice. The onset of dissipation is characterized by a noisy flux creep with a temperature independent activation energy U(j). At higher temperatures, the creep regime crosses over into a flux flow regime with linear resistivity. Apart from the dip in resistivity at T-m, associated with the peak effect and usually assigned to a softening of the shear modulus, the resistivity of the flowing flux lattice continuously extends into the vortex-liquid.
