Magneto-optical characterisations of YBa2Cu3O7-x films grown on top of La1-xSrxMnO3 layers are presented. This analysis is focused on the study of the magnetic interaction exerted on vortices in YBa2Cu3O7-x films by the manganite magnetic structures. The twin boundaries in the LaAlO3 substrate induce splitting of the manganite magnetic domains with in-plane magnetization that are separated by out-of-plane magnetic structures, pinned at twin boundaries [1]. The vortices nucleated by the external magnetic field interact with the underlying out-of-plane magnetic moments depending on their local structure and magnetic polarization. By the inversion of the Biot-Savart law, the effects of the underlying magnetic structure on local current densities in YBa2Cu3O7-x films are evaluated. Different blocking mechanisms (sink or reservoir) are found for current parallel to twin-boundaries, whereas for current perpendicular to the out-of-plane magnetic structures either blocking or channelling effect is achieved. These channelling/blocking phenomena are fundamental for magnetic-quanta control in hybrid superconducting/ferromagnetic devices for spintronics.
