Abstract: We report a novel magnetic-field dependence of the critical-current density J(c) in artificially grown Ge/Pb superlattices. In these layered structures J(c) exhibits an unexpected minimum as a function of perpendicular applied field, unlike any ever observed in other superconducting systems. The systematic evolution of this minimum as a function of layer thicknesses, temperature, and pinning strength is related to either flux-lattice decoupling or melting.
