Destruction of localized electron pairs above the magnetic-field-driven superconductor-insulator transition in amorphous In-O films
We have investigated the field-induced superconductivity-destroying quantum transition in amorphous indium oxide films at low temperatures down to 30 mK. It has been found that, on the high-field side of the transition, the magnetoresistance reaches a maximum and the phase can be insulating as well as metallic. With further increasing magnetic field the film resistance drops and approaches in the high-field limit the resistance value at transition point so that at high fields the metallic phase occurs for both cases. We give a qualitative account of this behavior in terms of field-induced destruction of localized electron pairs.
