Penetration of vortices into micro-superconductors observed with a scanning SQUID microscope

Nishio, Taichiro; Okayasu, Satoru; Suzuki, Junichi; Kadowaki, Kazuo

We have studied the vortex states in a meoscopic superconductor with geometrical constraints such as disks, triangles, squares, etc. with dimensions between 30-50$$mu$$m using a scanning SQUID microscope (SQM2000,Seiko Instruments Inc.). The sample was fabricated by electron lithography and Focused Ion Beam (FIB) techniques. Quantized vortices enter into a mesoscopic superconductor discretely as a function of magnetic field accompanied by the sequential step-wise jump of magnetization of the superconductor. Quantitative as well as qualitative analyses of spatial vortex arrangement as a function of the number of vortices will be shown in comparison with the recent theoretical predictions.
