Abstract

The flux-flow resistance generated by current-induced vortex motion only results in linear resistance phenomena if the vortices do not change because of their motion. In this case the flux-flow resistance is independent of the vortex velocity, i.e., independent of the electric field. However, nonlinear resistive phenomena, such as hysteretic resistance steps, negative differential resistance and spontaneous resistance oscillations, can arise, if the vortices change due to their motion. An important mechanism leading to such nonli-nearities is the shift of the quasiparticle energy distribution to higher energy in the presence of the electric field generated by vortex motion. Based on this mechanism there are different possible scenarios depending on the electronic vortex structure and on some details of the quasiparticle scattering. These scenarios are associated with specific temperature regimes.
