Vortex Pinning by an Inhomogeneous Magnetic Field Academic Article uri icon


  • We discuss the transport properties of a superconducting film under the influence of a tesla range spatially alternating magnetic field created by magnetic nanostructures placed outside a superconducting film with an insulating barrier between both so that they interact only via the magnetic field. A simple model for pinning by the spatially periodic magnetic field from the magnetic nanostructure qualitatively describes the data. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
