Abstract [en]

Usual superconductors are classified into two categories: of type-1 when the ratio of the magnetic field penetration length (lambda) to coherence length (xi) kappa = lambda/xi < 1/root 2 and of type-2 when kappa > 1/root 2. The boundary case kappa = 1/root 2 is also considered to be a special situation, frequently termed as "Bogomolnyi limit". Here we discuss multicomponent systems which can possess three or more fundamental length scales and allow a separate superconducting state, which was recently termed "type-1.5". In that state, a system has the following hierarchy of coherence and penetration lengths xi(1) < root 2 lambda < xi(2). We also briefly overview the works on single-component regime kappa approximate to 1/root 2 and comment on recent discussion by Brandt and Das in the proceedings of the previous conference in this series.
