Abstract

Hall voltages VH in a resistive superconducting state and in a normal state are shown to have opposite signs. This is accounted for by a flux vortex motion. Current-voltage characteristics V∝Ia(T) near the transition with a characteristic Nelson-Kosterlitz jump in a(T) at T = Tc present the evidence for a Kosterlitz-Thouless (KT) transition, which may be explained by flux vortex unbinding inside the superconducting planes.
