Abstract: We present an atomic resolution scanning tunneling spectroscopy study of superconducting BaFe1.8Co0.2As2 single crystals in magnetic fields up to 9 T. At zero field, a single gap with coherence peaks at [untranscribable character] = 6:25 meV is observed in the density of states. At 9 and 6 T, we image a disordered vortex lattice, consistent with isotropic, single flux quantum vortices. Vortex locations are uncorrelated with strong-scattering surface impurities, demonstrating bulk pinning. The vortex-induced subgap density of states fits an exponential decay from the vortex center, from which we extract a coherence length [untranscribable character] = 27:6 +/- 2:9 [untranscribable character], corresponding to an upper critical field Hc2 = 43 T.
