Abstract

Muon-spin rotation (μSR) measurements have been used to study the superconducting vortex properties of the organic superconductors κ-(BEDT-TTF)2Cu(SCN)2, α-(BEDT-TTF)2NH4Hg(SCN)4 and β-(BEDT-TTF)2IBr2. These materials all have highly anisotropic structures consisting of metallic layers of BEDT-TTF molecules alternating with less well conducting anion layers. Varying the anion gives rise to a change in the anisotropy of the superconductivity and also to changes in the superconducting transition temperature. We have used both transverse and longitudinal magnetic fields to study the three-dimensional flux line lattice that is present at low temperatures and fields and to study also the loss of flux lattice order that occurs on increasing the temperature and field.
