Recently, the phase of the two-flavor quark matter with the new
pattern of color superconductivity was proposed so that the continuous
crossover from the hadronic to the quark phase is realized [1]; it is
in consonance with the recent observation of neutron stars.
In this talk, I will show the classification of the topological
vortices in this phase. We found that the stable vortices are what we
call the "non-Abelian Alice strings" [2]. They are superfluid
vortices carrying 1/3 quantized circulation and color magnetic fluxes.
I will discuss their properties in comparison to the well-established
CFL vortices in three-flavor symmetric setup, by putting some emphasis
on their peculiarity: the non-Abelian generalization of the Alice
property. I will then discuss in detail the possibility that these
vortices are confined as well as how the vortices in the quark phase
can be connected to those in the hadronic phase [3].
