Vortex phase diagram in Bi$$_{2}$$Sr$$_{2}$$CaCu$$_{2}$$O$$_{8+delta}$$ with damage tracks created by 30 MeV fullerene irradiation

By irradiating 30MeV C$$_{60}$$ fullerene beam, we have produced tracks of diameter 20nm and length 200nm near the surface of single crystalline Bi$$_{2}$$Sr$$_{2}$$CaCu$$_{2}$$O$$_{8+delta}$$. Both the critical current density and magnetic irreversibility line are significantly enhanced. The irradiated crystals have shown salient features of the ($$B$$,$$T$$) vortex phase diagram of vortex matter both of unirradiated sample, such as the first order vortex phase transition, and the exponential Bose glass line characteristic of heavy ion-irradiated crystals.
