A resonance has been observed in the mixed state of YBa2Cu3O7 thin films at h {combining short solidus overlay} ω ≅ 3 meV in the (hole) cyclotron resonance active mode of circular polarization. This chiral response is inconsistent with the conventional models of vortex dynamics. Based on a clean-limit theory recently developed by T. Hsu [Physica C 213 (1993) 305] which successfully describes these experiments we identify the resonance as a hybridized cyclotron-pinning resonance.
