On Magnetic Flux Trapping by Surface Superconductivity

  • E. R. Podolyak
Order, Disorder, and Phase Transition in Condensed System


The magnetic flux trapping by surface superconductivity is considered. The stability of the state localized at the cylindrical sample surface upon a change in the external magnetic field is tested. It is shown that as the magnetic field decreases, the sample acquires a positive magnetic moment due to magnetic flux trapping; i.e., the magnetization curve of surface superconductivity is “paramagnetic” by nature.
