Abstract

The [Co/Pt]n/Nb/[Co/Pt]n hybrids with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy reveal enhanced superconductivity with the presence, and the arrangements, of domain walls, where superconductivity persists. An in-plane field can manipulate the domain walls from labyrinth to stripe patterns and drive the hybrids from normal to superconducting. We observe anisotropic superconductivity in hybrids with stripe domains, along which enhanced superconductivity is realized.
