Abstract: Based on the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equations, we study numerically current-driven vortices in a micrometer size square type-II superconductor. We demonstrate that the applied current significantly influences the dynamics of the vortices entering the sample. Strikingly, we find that a giant vortex can be created by the current-assisted collision of two singly quantized vortices.
