Abstract

Transport measurements using the dc flux transformer configuration together with (Formula presented)-axis resistance data in clean and twinned (Formula presented) single crystals show that vortices are localized by the twin-boundary potential. The results support the existence of a divergent tilt modulus [D. R. Nelson and V. M. Vinokur, ] in a liquid that freezes into a Bose glass.
